I sit in the silence of my tears,
The Room cold and lonely around me...
Broken pieces of my heart,
Flutter to the floor to surround me...
I looked up and for a brief instant in time,
I was immobile...stunned with the force of your presence...
You tenderly reached across
and gently wiped the tears from my eyes...
You lingered,
Your hand...soft upon my skin...
I listened as you began to talk...
Your voice singing in my mind...
Time seemed to stand still,
Yet hours passed us by...
We talked of our lives,
Our loves...
What makes us laugh,
What makes us cry...
All too soon,
It was time for you to say goodbye...
We must have said goodbye a dozen times,
In a dozen different ways...
Each of us holding on,
For just one more stolen moment...
Go..you cried
Please!
You know
I cannot bear to leave you!
I was so scared,
I might never see you again...
This kind and gentle man,
Who wiped my tears away...
And found the laughter in me once more...
Night after night,
I return to The Room,
Where we meet in the recesses
Of our minds...
You take my hand and we soar,
Above the clouds cradled in desire...
You take me higher than I have ever flown,
You bring me joy like I have never known...
And for us...
Together...
Life is Beautiful...

Linda, this was beautiful.  I got a very peaceful feeling in reading it.  I loved the ending, also.  Welcome to Passions, I look forward to seeing more of your work here.

Great Poem lindak6,

I loved the ending*S*

 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lindak6,

Welcome to Passions.  Very beautiful and well written.  I have felt that way about parting a time or two in my life.  Great first post.  I look forward to reading more of your work.

I am fairly new here too, but everyone is sweet and appreciate the same things. This is a lovely first poem, I wish I could relate to it a bit more than I do, but I look forward to reading others.
