Poem -

I Live....

I Live....

Forgive me please I left too soon
before the words that should be said,
the words I know you need to hear
and keep me living and not dead

To speak a longing in your ear
that wills you think of better days,
when youth was rash and time was long
and love was shown in diverse ways.

When breezes blown were covers drawn
around our bodies so entwined.
Soft kisses placed on downy skin,
you were my soul,my heart ,my mind

I bid you waken each new dawn
with hope within a heart alight.
To know that I am always there
beside you, but not quite in sight

In quiet times speak to me soft.
Each hushed amen to close a prayer,
and listen for that blessed peace
when hearing it, know I am there.

I am that poem left unread,
that part of you still hidden deep.
The words were maybe never said
but you will hear them when you sleep

I live within the love we knew,
within a Bower bird sweet  song.
I live within a rainbows hue,
I live within….I am not gone.

Thank you Matthew, sometimes we need to tell those closest to us the words we know they can take comfort from when we do eventually go..although even then ..we are never truly ever gone are we?  we live on through our contact with everyone we have ever met in some way ,shape or form  and I hope tht it will always be the most postive of memories that are left. thank you my honorary as always for your lovely comments.

Hi Loki, 
I think I have the best honorary Grammy in the entire world, perhaps even the galaxy. I hope we're never really gone. Life's a funny, awful thing, and I struggle with the meaning of it daily, but people like you are a nice light that sometimes shines through the darkness. 
I'm glad I met you. Thanks. 
Matthew.

HI Lodigiana....The body is weak but the spirit is strong!  I think of those words from the Bible....because they are so true!  We sometimes do not say the things we wanted to tell those we love, and we should!..to give them hope and words to remember!  This really give me motivation to tell those I love how much they mean...as we never know when our number is up.  But we never truly die.....so there is that hope of overcoming....Great words to live by!  xo:)

Hi Cherie, what you say is so so true, we all hope that we will live long, productive and full lives but life is sometimes unpredictable and the unexpected happens,  I hope to never let anyone out of my life that I have not  opened my heart to ..but still working on that one every day! .. thanks so much for your wise and lovely words xx
