  • Lovers Parted

    My Love,
    I sit and ponder.
    Could our hearts for others wander
    and we no longer love?
    Could time an indifference create,
    could absence a blindness generate,
    to a love we once saw clearly?
    I fear and tremble that apart
    no loving thoughts will warm your heart
    and you will seek another.


    Oh send to me through space and time
    the message that your love sublime
    still burns for me alone.
    For I cry tears of emptiness
    missing, as I do, your loves caress,
    your warmth, your smile, your gentleness,
    how I long to see you.
    Your voice to hear, your kiss to taste,
    to hold you close in loves embrace.
    My love come quickly to me,
    that I again might smile and sigh,
    that tears of joy my eyes might cry
    to wash away this sadness.

    For I alone am but a shell.
    Tis when your love within me dwells
    that I begin to live.
    So my darling, while we're apart
    keep our love- my life- within your heart.
    I, our love, will cherish here
    'till once again I hold you near.

    A beautiful lover's lament rhymetime - that I, myself, have often sung when my husband and I had to spend time apart due to work obligations. The waiting time between is so very difficult and you captured that perfectly...and so much more eloquently than I've ever been able to do.

            Truly, devastatingly gorgeous, rhymetime. I think you captured those sickeningly lonely moments perfectly.

              Very touching, rhymetime! This the kind of stuff that brings lovers to their knees!
