Softly, like a fallen leaf
My tears fall and gather within the rugged furrows
Of a misfortunate love
That once dispelled Fear and pain
No more did I Disdain sorrow
But rather I sought you within a clouded Ambience
Dispersing newness and sadness together
Within solitude Standing, I stood alone
And felt you within the very core of my being
Oh where are you, my love?
Despised and forgotten I seek you out among
The lost and found that once combined
Joy and gladness to the very meaning of being…
Sorrow I have sought but rather,
I have reneged and turned alone
In solitude, there, with
Nothing but a bewildered memory
Of one who remembers Desire and wholeness
Solace comes and goes, but love stays
And thus I remember you, my heart!
