My Place In The Sun

Now, night after night I look for that special place
And, endlessly searching for your precious face
Now, I know how to find you all on my own
But, the roads not the same if I travel alone...

For a while you walked a complete new mile
And, inside I waved but still I smiled
I bowed my head in the hope of a better place for you
When inside I just wanted to be with you too...

I know you didn't see me watching you move so far beyond
But, with grace I stood back I let you fly on
And, to myself I prayed to one day go with my friend
What a day that'll be where the sun doesn't end...

One day I hope to be in the arms of the carrying kind
And, so if I fall at least I land softly this time
It's you, it's the air, it's just the way I breathe
My place in the sun will be waiting for me...

My place in the sun isn't so far away
It's just the miles get longer each new day
And, again, I take your face when the sun goes down
So, the new sun, next day, may be the day it's found...

I watch you move closer then drift for a better view
And, each time you get closer, there's a stronger you
And, so you hold the weak just high enough to see
Where they can get just a glance where they'll someday be...

It's you, it's the air, it's just the way I breathe
And, my place in the sun is there waiting for me
I live what I breathe and I breathe what I live
So, I follow with every moment your heart has to give...

My place in the sun is only heaven if you're there
Cause my place in the sun is the reflection of how another cared
It's you, it's the air, it's just the way I breathe
And, my place in the sun just waits for me...

Saun




Sauni :)
Have you ever known the color grey when the nighttime finds you weak
I have, I've walked that road each time; that's where my angel sleeps

Saun, a very beautiful poem this one was pulling hard upon my heart strings.

"To the centre of the
city where all roads
meet, waiting for you,To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank,
searching for you," Joy divison

Saunni,
Geez, I loved this. Is that a little wet spot near my eye? Lovely, just lovely, I don't know what else to say.

===========================
this is exceptional
in both it expression of emotions
and rhyme flow
very very nice work here
wonderful heartfelt writing
headed for my library file  
take care

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.
