The Light

In my shadow
I can see her face briefly for a moment
Her mind is of darkness
Moments of indifference and confusion
In her darkness she searches for the light
Like a pebble on the sea-shore insignificant among many
She waits for the light
At the right moment the light cast its rays on her and she shines like a diamond
I can see her beauty
But without love or contentment she struggles to hold onto the light
It eludes her once more
In the depths of her dispar she is alone
In her emptiness and solitude she trembles
Her transparency is for ever evident she cannot conceal it
In her dilutions she rises like a phoenix out of the ashes
She reaches once more for the light
She captures it and brings it to her chest
Like a moth to a flame she burns bright
And then she is no more


The Widow

Our house is never empty, never still
For in our house your spirit stays
It does not sleep in your lonely grave

All our pictures still hang on the walls
I stop to remember and look at them all
Threw the glass I can see your face
With my finger I trace the out line of your smile
You have been gone a short time only awhile

I need no reason to make me believe
For your spirit forever encompasses me
I can hear your laugh and I can hear your voice
To leave me would have never been your choice

Oh sweet heart the days go by
With all the rainbows that arch the sky
On a lonely winters night
I sit alone by the fire light
When I sleep I am not alone
For in my dreams you forever roam

Oh sweet invader of my dreams
Who captures my tears as they stream
In the soft moon light
I hear you whisper sweet dreams good night
Threw endless sleepless nights gone by
With all the moons that pass the sky
I speak to you old hands of time
My heart still belongs to him and his to mine

If I have just one breath left
Let it not be of sorrow but happiness
You lay in my broken dreams of yesterday
In my cries I hear you say
Don’t cry my love, we will be together again some day.
