My Vision of Hope
What inspires you when writing poetry? I write poetry that comes from my deepest thoughts. Sometimes I write poetry that comes to my thoughts in an instant. I love writing poetry. Not only is it a way to share inspiration, but it can also make the writer feel better as they are sharing with others their innermost feelings.
This poem is about a love that goes beyond the boundaries. A love that has a powerful pull for two people, with no other purpose but to love one another the only way they can. Distance is in between them, but love conquers the miles.
I still pray up to heaven for us
to be together…obstacles impossible
without a golden halo for he to offer.
My thoughts turning to sadness
as I realize with despair; It wasn't
meant to be, no; he will not once
take us there.
We may never know how it feels
to be together. Miles apart we dwell.
Destinies that differ...
you at the beginning, me in the
middle, time and space between us
our fate to which we surrender.
Now, as I walk out the door, it’s the
start of spring. I breathe in the aroma
of fresh grass green...
birds chirping happily in the tall
trees. The breeze blowing slightly
rustling the leaves.
It is then as I raise my eyes to the
billowing sky, that I know he has given
us a gift of pure splendor.
This gift of love that exists in a world
set apart; no race, no religion, not even
our worlds afar part could render.
For we become one as we wonder
at the stars at night. We are near to
each other in a beautiful bright sunrise.
With these moments that can be felt
on both sides of the earth, we will remain
distant souls who are forever fated.
