Thoughts of You
The darkness of the night fills the space around me
Softly as it swirls in the cool breeze.
A flicker of light in the distance, is all that can be seen.
I feel you gently touch my arm and joy leaps in my heart.
I dare not move or look around,for fear that you will fly.
I feel you near me,closer now,wandering why I cry.
When all along your here with me, watching as I sway.
Your love has bridged the distance,that your death made that day.
I miss you now and forever more, until that great beyond.
I sit here with your memory, in the blackness that is life,
With longing in my shattered heart to have you here again,
Yet I settle for a gentle touch, from you upon my arm.
