My Wish for You
Promises to Keep
There are vows I made to myself this morn
as daylight crept into my mind,
promises lost that I mean to keep,
and hopes that my heart must find.
Down to the ocean my feet must fly
and thrill to the secrets of waves;
into the valleys and mountains deep
to learn the voice of the caves.
My heart shall follow the unicorn
to the hidden lakes and dells,
the fairys light will throw flowers bright;
I will follow but never tell.
I will wish on a falling star at dark,
and tell not a soul but the moon;
stand in awe as the forest weeps
and the winds in the willow croon.
I'll remember when laughter and love was all,
and wishes were dreams come true;
when I danced and danced, and danced some more,
as the myths around me flew;
when song was the only language I knew,
and I lay in the lap of wonder!
I promise myself, tonight I'll fly
and remember when dreams were younger.

I cried, and the colors of sky and sea
blended, and tainted the hues of my heart.
I wept, and the melody of the blue
sprang forth and tore my being apart.
The tears of my soul joined the river's flow
and swept to their fate in the ocean blue;
the wind in the trees echoed my despair
as I whispered my story of losing you.

You slipped away from my life one day
like the sun from the coming rain;
silently moving into the past,
and my searching was all in vain.
Your memory wandered through my mind
and heart, and touched my very soul,
but you were gone, and all that remained
was the cold black void of a deep dark hole.
I walk the paths on which we roamed
with laughter, lust and loving eyes,
and wonder when my lover's dream
did change, and donned deceit's disguise.
And so I linger in the corners
of the happy times we knew,
reading the pages of time now past
between the covers of memory's hues.

LOVE - sometimes hidden, sometimes unbidden, sometimes obtuse and unfair;
LOVE - sometimes higher than Mankind aspires, showing us all how to share.
LOVE - sometimes painful - lonely and hurtful - leaving someone sad and cold.
LOVE - always share it! Because you will learn, it always comes back tenfold!!
