Listen to the thunder in my heart.
Witness the rain fall from my eyes.
Smell the fear that I hold in my hands
after hearing you say your goodbyes.
From the moment we first met
I knew life would not be the same.
The tender touch of your hand on my face.
The way your voice whispered my name.
Memories like these will never cease.
and forever hold my love at bay.
Nightmares of that awful night when you left.
The night I begged you to stay.
I close my eyes to listen for your return.
Praying you will change your mind.
Be my lover, my friend, my soul mate forever.
Never another like you, will I find.
Seconds pass since you left my position.
Feeling like its been for many a week.
Will you ever come back home to me
or will it be another life that you seek.
Hours, Days, Months and Years go by
but I will never forget how you smelled.
The spicy sweetness of your gentle skin
and your neck where my face once dwelled.
I have faith we will be together again.
That day won’t come soon enough.
I never knew that losing the one I love
would make life so unbearably rough.
I stand strong, wise and vigilant
and others help me look for the day
when we will all be a spiritual family again
no matter what troubles come our way.
Til then, my love, I live and laugh
and hope one day to wake up surprised
to find that we have reached another lifetime…
a time of no more goodbyes.
