Often when I am troubled I turn to my blog and my poetic muse to work though life's complexities. Today I am very lonely and missing Mark with all my heart. This my love is for you!
Oh 'tis the hours before the dawn
That are the hardest on my heart...
I lay awake and talk to the shadow
Of the woman I once was...
Only now she lays on a shelf
Collecting dust or drowns
Herself deep in the pool
Of her own salty tears -
And shattered, a broken mirror
Lays idle reflecting on yesteryear.
Dreams we made, some we shared
Others never to come to be, alone
I must sit and ponder to eternity,
For no other man could reach my soul -
I, your mate until the end of time!
No matter how hard one might tug
At my heart strings they belong
Only to you my love, 'tis you I hold -
Locked within my heart to whom
Only I bear my soul... shed my tears...
The muse escapes me days on end
Without you here or near.
I battle bouts of depression -
Anxiety rises to dangerous peaks,
And the mountain's cliff beckons...
Not time though, not desperate enough!
Content I'll hold on to our memories,
None more precious than our first kiss -
Our first dance of love through the night;
Endless romancing, once sparks, now embers...
Dreams at times consume me day or night,
And I hold you, caress away your pain,
Your worries set aside, I, your wife abide.
My Faith in God and Thee, for all eternity
I shall hold you close and never let you go.
My white knight, you rescued me, loved me -
Held me in your arms and sang our love song...
Anon yonder the morning dove warbles.
Sweet melodies warm the heart of his love,
Like an angel sent to me from above...
Shattered shards of broken glass strewn
Across the floor, I drop to my knees
And hold back the misty tear eyed dew
That dances on my lashes, and flows
Like a river, tumbling down my cheeks
And wets my lips as if you kissed me...
I but the shallow remains of the beauty you beheld...
I care not to look within the looking glass -
'Tis broken and no remedy known to mankind
Will repair this broken shattered heart - I can only dream.
