Shadows,
always shadows,
howling round my ear.
Sorrows,
always sorrows,
my heart doesnít want to hear.
Sadness,
always sadness,
comes a solitary tear.
~ ~ ~
Wish you were here.
Wish you were here.
~ ~ ~
Ancient,
Iím so ancient,
half a century of grief.
Timeworn,
ever timeworn,
difficult to find relief.
~ ~ ~
Wish you were here.
Wish you were here.
~ ~ ~
Loves,
so many gone;
echoing trails of my lost.
Lost,
stretching haunted years,
no way to count the cost.
~ ~ ~
Wish you were here.
Wish you were here.
~ ~ ~
(For Kelly)



†The spiritual wind that holds survivors aloft, plants the seeds from which bloom new hope ... R.J.G.

Your words, "I am ancient" just wrenched my heart--with the strength of your shouting heart you have written.

You can feel your emotions calling out from your powerful words.  As was said above, a sorrowful haunting quality.

I could feel the emotions of this pouring out with every word and stanza....very powerful and incredibly sad. Take care.

"No way to count the cost", except by the depth of love, which is infinite.
So beautiful your verse of love

here I am typing through the night my sweet Rosemary's covers are pulled up tight then I saw her name and couldn't help myself. Thank you RJ. Thank you all from a very caring heart.
