I have never lost who it is you are- Poetry for Loves Sake

The Love that fills our lives with smiles.

I am still here in the end

If I lost my voice,

and I couldn’t call out your name,

I know that you wouldn’t need to hear me,

To know what I want to say.


There are weeks when I feel lost,

Days when I am not myself,

There are moment in time,

That I feel as if I’ve been left.


As the door closes,

You pull me close and say,

There is no point in worrying,

Save the worry for another day.


If you couldn’t see,

I would be by your side,

I would take your hand and lead you,

I would take the place of your site.


There are mistakes that have been made,

Words spoken that shouldn’t have been said,

As daylight turns to night,

I am still here in the end.


As the door opens,

I will not let you walk alone.

I will show you there is no fear,

Even in a world we do not know.


Never have I given up on you,

Regardless of what has been done,

I see you in the darkness,

I see you are what makes me whole.


Cards have been played,

Even if we cannot win,

I will be here waiting for you,

And when you return it will be like you never left.


I cannot lie,

I am terrified of what is ahead.

I try not to think of the storybook,

Or how the fairy tale could end.


When you are not strong,

I will be here fighting for you,

I will never give up on us,

When the last page is read and we know the final truth.


Keep me in mind,

If you are ever lonely or scared,

I will keep your love with me,

Until it can once again be something shared.


Things haven’t been easy,

There are days when we go to bed mad,

There are times when we fight for no reason,

There are times we have forgotten what we have.


As the sunshine turns to rain,

And the sky turns dark,

Always know that in the worst moments,

I have never lost who it is you are.


No matter what the end brings,

No matter if it doesn’t seem fair,

I will stand here and be strong for you,

And wait for you to return from nowhere.

When our nights are restless and the winds of change sweep through our chamber door, we become alert and look around and listen to the stillness as our clock ticks and we stir from our place of rest. We make our way to the Quill and gently feel the caress of it's feather on our thoughts.

You my dear Holly have penned a marvelous tribute to LOVE, FAMILY and everything in between. A family needs to stay together forever. I was mesmerized by this wonderful piece you penned here. The video slide said it all and showed the beauty that is in your families eyes and smiles.

I wish only the best in the end, but no matter the outcome your steadfast and caring will go a very long way to sustain and keep you all as one. Peace and blessings coming your way from me to you and yours.

Oh My Gosh H.C.,

This hub is pure! Pure in it's emotion; pure in it's presentation and pure in the meaning of love!

Thank you so much for revealing a part of your very personal world. The photography grabbed me and captivated me, begging me to stay a little longer with each sparkle of light! The video moved, with each turn of the page, a different piece of this viewer's heart. Through the eyes of stillness you have captured the essence of love's mystery.

I term this poetry masterful and I'm grateful that you and one of your followers chose to share this very sensitive portrayal of life with us!

Voted up and awesome across the board!

Born2care2001- thank you for that stunning comment- I almost felt as if it should have been a hub on its own, rather than an extension here today of my hub. I am humbled and honored by your remarks and thank you for taking the time to comment and bring a smile to my face today.

Words spoken from the heart and full of love. Well done. The poem was a beautiful expression of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. The video brought even more insight to the words of the poem, as it reflected the beauty that you are surrounded by. This is a definite share. Looking forward to reading more of your works :-)
