I feel a mother's love,
I feel the gentle waves caress my toes,
I feel the tidal pull from the moon up above,
I feel the wind as it blows.

What is my purpose?
Daughter, Mother, Sister, Friend?
Cos I still feel this yearning, this longing,
And sometimes it feels like it'll never end.

The wildness of a summer storm,
The early morning grass kissed by the dew,
The magic of sunrise at dawn,
All serve to remind me of you.

I cherish these gifts daily
I use them as Talismen
When all else fails me
These wild wonders remind me of you.

I don't like living this way
But what else can I do?
Just making do bides the time
Until I'm with you.

So, all I have is Talismen
They help me to get through,
I'll have these reminders,
Until I have you.

Isis, I liked this! I noticed you are very good at painting pictures with your poetry. To the TOP.

Isis, I really enjoyed reading this piece! I, too, have felt this longing that you speak of too many times! Great work!
