A reality told

There at a table one March day
Where love took me astray.
There in the darkened room
You shone like a rose in bloom.

Then why do I lose you each day?

Yet there after a little play
I had to leave you to go away
The love stayed as a second skin
A mantle to hide my love within

Then why do I lose you each day?

I have searched high and low
But it is inside you only glow
A sense of being gathers my soul
Many years now I have loved you so.

Then why do I lose you each day?

I awake your face clear in mind
Why did I leave you behind?
A physical being that was all.
Your spirit inside me does call.

Then why do I lose you each day?

I walk and talk to many a folk
There I laugh and tell a joke
I hope that the joke is not on me
Because I had to set you free.

Then why do I lose you each day?

I never lost you, did you not know
You are part of my very soul
One place in a far distant time
We will join your soul and mine.

Just call my name in whispers low
I will stand by your side you know
In eternity we will laugh and play.
A feeling, a colour you will know.

I love you so

A memory found

I touched your hand
Something changed
Never be normal again
How could this be
I had guarded my ways

Yet there you broke through
Days were spent
Talking and just being
Afraid to touch just feeling
Nothing stayed the same

I showed you a crystal
You stopped kicking stones
You tought me a peace
I would never be alone
This touch was passing

Together we couldn’t be
One wind cooled you
Another warmed me
The distance did grow
As a velvet moss on a tree

One side only could see
There held to face life’s storm
As your peace held my mind
I would never know
What I had left behind

Many years passed me by
Snow fell then the sun
Nothing could warm me
As you then had done
I hold you in my soul

Others come and go
They touch me just so
Always hidden from view
That long years can do
That memory of you

Will Stay

“A Longing Touch”

There in the glow of evening
I feel your touch in my senses
Then you close your form to me
I retouch as senses reel away

Just being, with nothing to compare
Soft silk, of skin against skin
Drifting minds on a journey new
I have found you, I am overwhelmed

Dreams made that float away
Cares dimmed for another day
Please, Please, just say you’ll stay
Ah! Your thoughts joined my way.

Touch and touch some more
Let dreams be fulfilled for us
To me I feel we have at last joined
Distance gone so has the time

How can I say the feelings flow?
I would drown, in gossamers touch
Inside my body melts slowly down
Converted into a smile no frown.

Should I ask you how you feel?
In whispers shared would I dare?
In this love of joining you know I care
A touch, a smile there’s a beauty there

If only this would last as a dream
An eternity without a seam
Pushing even the stars out of the way
We know we are so in love today.

Memory

Memory

The ice was etched in perfect form
Snow like a gossamer gown
That has yet to be worn

Sky carved from an ebony block so true
Scattered with diamonds to make black, blue
Held within the visions glow

No matter that it was Ice and snow
A love that has always been
That warmth which purveyed this scene

For all time the grass would be green
The only thing that love could do
Was to create perfection for us two

To look in wonder lost in time
The moment stored deep within the mind
Here an eternity of time left behind

Etched forever in those vast spaces
As with this and many places
It mattered not that no one shared

That it was, and is, no matter who cared
That I was here with you.

Sespene

There in the darkness of many days
A light to my spirit shines true
Time our enemy, has kept this space
Distance bridged with thought each day

There is nothing that can stand in our way
A love of all things not touched just felt
Kindred spirits closed together and held
How can I call it a love of any kind?

It is a food to sustain my being
A happiness to feel at all times
What distance my soul screams
We cannot be held from each other

I bathe in eternal life of truth and love
I reach out and there touching is a part
A part of me that is an anchor always
Feelings as then, never changing.

If only this plain could bend a little
Where both ends would reach out
Then touch each other as we feel
There would be a brightness clear

It cannot be so my love we have to wait
I shall stand at the portal with open arms
There we shall walk again together
As there is no time, I see you there,

In Our Now.

There, I felt the essence of our true love
Feelings akin to super glues holdings
Drifting thoughts, flowing across a table
Seeking perfection, held in each other

The eyes holding, shining truth, then loving
Each moment etched in gold, entwining souls
Where have you come from? I thought, seeking more
A lifetime of dreams rendered to my needs

Nothing existed beyond this one moment
Held above morality and revered
I was just a being, and there you were
Nothing was good enough to describe you

Now a lifetime has passed by my window
There you are, across that table once more..

A Love of Memory

“A love of memory”

Thu, 2017-04-27 08:51

Why did my spine tingle?
Where did my balance go?
There in the glow of evening
I caught the perfume of your soul.

A shape that made my balance jelly
A face that made dreams wonderful reality
Where did you come from I screamed
The scream only felt not heard deep inside

Days floated into seconds I feared the next
That time to leave you, rushed to me
Though each second seemed years
A softness of touch, feelings spreading

Is this a love that has captured me?
Did I not love before, or did I pretend?
Guarded ways for feelings so tender
I was supposed to be strong in all things.

A blithering wreck cast on a perfect beach
There I watched each movement
Though eyes were vacant dreams
The vision of you was stealing my soul.

Tender words drifted and were captured
Bolstering a growing love, encompassing me.
Held by the strongest web, I wanted to stay
I gave you my soul knowing it was safe.

A fear came when I had to leave our space.
A space where we were one and love grew
If only we had talked of feelings true
A system dictated that we hid things away.

Time has passed, years have come and gone
There in the sanctuary of my mind you are
Held there above all things I believed.
As the sea touches the shore,

I touch you each day..

Holding a Memory

Holding a memory

There in the silence of another day born
Memories tried to hold onto my form
There in the lighted shadows you stood
Always waiting as I knew you would

A joining of beings in frenzied thought
Nothing like this has ever been taught
There you were, and will always stay
As fresh in my memory, cycled each day.

How can I sweep my life clean of things?
There you are attached to my heart strings.
We understand that the power is not ours
That shakes our nerves for many hours

I never want to be free of the memory
You brought me that set me forever free
I accept that it is far better to have known
Than for an unfulfilled Spirit to walk alone.

If only I had stayed there in another day
Memories would be truth, and set a new way
These thoughts would then have left me alone
There in greener pastures I would now roam.

There you are held in my memories eyes
A beautiful sight of you that I realise
In my vision, from those days when we were free,
Tethered for ever in love, just you and me..

Memory Held (170920)

Sometimes I am so lost
Lost to the past memories
Then a voice from now,
Brings me a touch of sanity.

There in the bright shadows
I watch your form flow
Tingles run as they did before
Where my friend asked what for

I told him that I had met you
There a quiet came over me
A purpose to be and calm to all
Yet life unfulfilled my name called

I hid from all those things that could be
Too much love descended on me
Why I asked did it come to me then
I was stuck in a life of bends

Twists and turns held my now
I was lost and couldn’t find you
A touch of your voice found me
I never wanted to be free

Then years passed I would you hide
A special place so deep inside
What is this love that we know so well?
It is as the world turns, so hard to quell.

Now as I wander far and wide
I touch you there so deep inside
I hold you high above all I meet
Knowing that one day we will greet

I will hold you so that I can see all
The things not lost that I can recall
A quiet as the evening draws nigh
We will as Spirits learn to fly

Talking laughing in a different way
Colours seeking you out by and by
Thoughts of pure feelings all will be shown
There in time we will make a new home

Is this the dawn I talked to you of
Those years ago, we couldn’t show love
Now a new meadows flowers are grown
Where we can pick that perfect bloom
