In the space between moments

When the distance slowly sweeps,
And thoughts drift like tumbleweeds,
When all I feel is bitter cold,
You've been the warmth surrounding me.

When enchantment turns dark and bleak,
And raging winters freeze my soul,
When I fear I've lost myself,
From your touch, reassurance grows.

The phantom of your shadowed spirit,
Stays gently swaying by my side,
And even when we tread apart,
My love for you will be my guide.

When twilight falls within my eyes,
And waves of pain pull me down,
When my heart lays raw and broken,
You gently lift me heaven bound.

I've never regretted the somber night,
Nor felt my tears fell in vain,
For your love was there to rescue me,
And push away my blinding pain.



 *Krista Knutson*

~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

Krista-
This is beautifully written with
a sad tone to it.
And yet leaves me feeling you've
been uplifted by a strong love.
