Had I not loved you
I would not love
Your voice still beckons me to peace,
A place we only knew in dreams,
A place we only knew in dreams.

To see beyond
Those emerald eyes,
To see what you saw,
That fire that burned me to cinders,
I call to you in dreams,
I call to you in dreams.


In the morning,
I hear you laugh,
As the sky fills with sunlight.


In the evening,
I feel you touch my cheek,
As you breathe against my skin,
And a teardrop falls,
Or was that the rain?


Those eyes,
Those emerald eyes,
In them I saw tomorrow.
Those sleeping eyes;
Rest now my love.
Rest now my love.


I am glad that it is I that miss you.
For I would walk the fire,
To spare you this.
Rest now my love.

I am still reeling from the reading. The most tender words I have found in so many days.

The first two lines make this very special....and the remaining ones are excellent. This is very good writing.

Thank you masters!

Meadowmuse -- I was still reeling when I wrote it -- but it was a long time ago.  I find writing in the heat of the moment therapeutic -- but it is even more so to look back and see how far I've come.

Thanks again

Yes but, think of the love you gave, that she gave and that you both shared...

Peace sweetheart, peace

Teardrops fall from my eyes
whispered words felt as sighs
love spoken dreamily thus
we thank you for sharing with us.

Very well done my friend....It brought back memories to me......(Okay, so the memories were kinda like; "Toerag, get your ass over here, I'm gonna give you a "piece" of my mind).....but that is kinda "Your voice beckons me to peace" isn't it?
