Lover Step Back (poem)

A kiss of this each heartbeat is resigned

A dream whose endless spring now leads me on

This theme which every breath I take is drawn

What once was true this marvel redefined


But let us step back for awhile

And take in what is happening

A shelter from this breeze’s charm

Flushing though my soul so confused


She is just a girl after all

Nothing special to a moment

The sun will still shine without her

Flowers will still welcome morning


Who is she who scents my meaning

Capturing all my tomorrows

Whispering with every footstep

Come back to me Come back to me


Then in my calm

Of pure delusion

My silence is broken

Oh God how I love her


And memories enchanted her embrace

Recalling splendors on a lover’s shore

Which fashions passions never felt before

And every trace is mingle with her grace


And so I pledge forever to my love

This wonder of the stardust from above

It is amazing how many people carry on, holding that torch for one who has passed. Perhaps it has something to do with being faithful, even on another plane of existence?
