    Cool breezes in the morn
    Soothes my pain, my dreams
    Of love, hopes of tomorrow
    Walking the park holding hands

    I wish to close my eyes and See
    you appear between the fall of tears
    as the summer days become longer
    holding close to my serenity

    the humid air of midday takes my
    breathing when I try to run in your
    direction not realizing that distance
    holds me at patience doorstep;

    I can’t breathe, I can’t see for when
    I open my eyes all I see is you walk
    By in a crowd, calling to me from all
    Directions holding my thoughts at bay;

    I’m on my knees tonight, shivering
    Like a new born cub in winter seeking
    Warmth from one whom loves them so
    Wanting to be held in security’s veil;

    The rains come and go as the storm
    Of tears flow endlessly within me
    Never allowing the world to see pain
    Holding my heart in full constriction;

    And yet I can never turn away from the
    Things within that has planted hope, instilled
    joy, resurrected aspiration all the while
    Holding close to the things that keep me

    Fearfully in love with you…

    "fearfully in love"....

    You captured the essence of this one so well. How courageous and insightful of you to remind us of the elements of uncertainty when we fall without looking...without really knowing....into love.

    You are without a doubt one of my favourites on this page because you force me to look behind curtains...and underneath tapestry rugs...to find the simple truths of life....waiting for me there

    Have a blessed day dear poet

    *fearless*

    :heart:
