The Lords Embrace

I'm there


I'm there... sitting beside myself,
Thinking about the world...
How I'm going to miss it,
One day when I'm gone.

I wonder if I'll be able to visit,
Those I leave behind...
I'm going to miss being in the physcial presence
And I often wonder why...

I'm there...secluded away from the world.
Lost in my mind,
Knowing that things become un-done,
Once I leave it all behind.

I stare into the horizon sun...
Taking it all in...
The overwhelming feeling I have,
Knowing that one day will come to an end.

The colors of the world define me as a person,
I know that much is true...
I love the world so much...
I even love you!

I sit there all alone,
Watching the colors dance across the sky...
I can't believe this overwhelming feeling I have...
Too scared to say good-bye.

Tears of love run down my face,
I feel the lords embrace...
He lifts me up,
Gives me his hand,
And we begin to walk away...

Leaving our footprints in the sand...
We don't look back,
I feel very safe,
He smiles at me,
I smile back,
To the man with the beautiful face.

Hello sligobay =-) I'm so happy that you came to revisit my poem... I'm very thrilled that you like it. No unfortunately I didn't take that picture, it was taken by a man named Joe. Wow... IZ will always be remembered. Thank you... now I think of Iz leaving his footprints in the sand. Your so awesome! Cheers.

Hello R.O.L.- I liked it so much I've come back to read it again. Did you take that lovely photo? Your Hub makes me think of the footprints of IZ K. in the island sand. Cheers.

Thanks J.L.-you live in a beautiful place,...now imagine....one hundredfold, the ability to feel and sense that beauty... all of your senses magnified in the spirit...not limited and encumbered by a human body... our fear of a worse situation makes us comfortable with things as they are. This was a beautiful expression from your heart. Cheers.

Thanks for reading Michael! Your feedback is very well appreciated. Ha ha I myself embrace that feeling of being "Too scared to say good-bye." There's so much that will be missed.

I know that feeling of "Too scared to say goodbye." I often live in that feeling. Ok, I embrace that feeling, regardless, this poem touched me and I identify with it. Nicely written.
