I was walking by the creek last night-
The grass wet from the dew-
As I sat and leaned against tree..
Sweetheart I thought of you.

I glanced up at the starry sky-
The stars looked like they knew
That here below a lonely guy
Had thoughts for only you.

I woke up in a lonely bed-
My dream life swiftly flew;
Gone was the comfort of my sleep
Where I was holding you.

I made the morning coffee-
Did the things you used to do,
Made breakfast, swept the kitchen-
With my thoughts consumed by you.

Thought I'd stop awhile and visit, girl
Since I was passing through;
And your home is right beside the way
I'll spend some time with you...

Want to tell you how I miss you-
Since that night you went away
I have spent a lot of hours..
By this lonely mound of clay.

Friends have told me you can't hear me-
But I know that isn't true-
For the only peace I ever have-
Is when I'm here with you.

Some have told me to find someone-
And to start my life anew,
No one on earth could take your place-
For my thoughts are all on you.



------------------
Live large, people!

Very touching. I am all too familiar with this kind of pain. You have expressed it so well.

Another one in the bullseye, GS. Mourning the death of a loved one always strikes a deep chord.

Been reading your poetry. It's really good! Gotta say, you're right up there with ole Balladeer. It is indeed a marvel that we have been given such a wonderful gift as memory. Hats off!


Ps. My pc doesn't know about that memory gift.

O all ye powers that he implanted, Arise, keep silence no more; put forth the strength that he hath granted, your noblest work is to adore.
