Promised Song (poem)

Updated on January 10, 2013

Return to me those moments far away

Those glimpses of a far more founder dawn

Grand hopes and wishes dreams are built upon

Soft scented valley of a brighter day

-

It seems the curtains of my soul are drawn

To diverse portions passing in life’s play

Confusion holds me captive in its sway

I fear that one which once was me is gone

-

Returning shadows whispering so long

A yearning churning causes heart to sting

While burning doubt casts blindness to my sight

-

Then in the wind returns a promised song

Refreshing water of eternal spring

She takes my hand and kisses me goodnight

      Martin, the women you cast to precede your poetry are always so beautiful. I perceive you see all women as beautiful, no matter their appearance.

      In this world of confusion, tragedy and discourse, it is wonderful when a resource of grounding through our soul is present. Beautiful write.
