A midsummer night in my sentiment
my muse arose depositing poetry at task,
with way of pen—my contemplation
my face against the wind,
my essence engaging in words realigning,
together with stillness of reason
and spirit unconfined,
mysterious language assembles,
selected in the same way
as a trusted friend,
with my muse, I write.
Your unwavering stance
Occupied a barren region,
Lingering there like a withering flower
Before you ultimately departed;
I suffered beforehand –
Missing our laughs, and talks,
And trips to new places –
I endured your scarcity;
I mourn we loss the time
To conquer our declining bonds,
Previous to your leaving, and you
Finding a new dwelling place,
Somewhere I cannot visit – presently;
The ever unfathomable crevice
Between us –
Befalls a mystery to me,
I meditate upon the why.
What threw us into that chasm?
Our not holding each other dear,
Dropping us into that never ending abyss –
I assumed it would pass with the rain,
Then we would have another day,
Another laugh, another talk, one more hug.
It never came to pass –
With great sadness –
Tears grasp around my throat, my mind, my heart.
I shake my head and I say, “Not”.
It is a battle I fight each night,
How I wish it naught!!
My peace I fight to keep.
She sits alone,
Wrought by an empty heart.
A forlorn song,
Neighbors drift afar,
Afraid to be there,
They point and stare,
Seals their hearts.
A heart heaving
With aches and prayers,
A binding truth and love
She strives to share
But others’ fear
Converts to glare,
And no one steps near.
My dreams arrived true
Of me and you,
Aged fine, and rich of joy,
Love for each other with more to deploy.
Evenings spent cooking, laughter, dancing
And sips of wine,
Eyes sparkling with love divine.
Sitting on the porch and staring at the stars,
A warm summer wind coming from afar,
Fireflies dance and we watch their show,
Shadows dancing in moonlight aglow.
We turn out the lights, and head to our room,
To rest and kiss with morning arriving soon,
Peaceful sleeping and wrapped in your arms,
Dazzled and delighted by only your charms;
You are my soul mate,
My dreams arrived true.
