The Light
by: Amy M. Kennedy

Sitting here wondering what is the meaning of my life
feeling the world closing in around me
Then out of the darkness, there appeared a light that swept me up
so bright it was hard to see
The most beautiful face my eyes have ever laid upon
graced my sight
You chased away my fears and tears
away went the ugly cold of the night
Once again I could breathe
the dark no longer holding me its prisoner...but set me free
With a few words from you, my life changed, and I again found me
My heart now dares again to love and to hope and to dream
Wanting to hold you close
underneath the sun, the stars, a moonbeam
But alas the distance for now separates us, but doesn't change the
intensity of what we feel
Sweet eternal bliss
this is so true and real
I won't allow doubt to creep in
or to ruin this perfect moment in time
And if this is wrong
then caring for you has been my only crime
Would serve my sentence knowing you are in my heart
and that what we have is true
So here I sit, counting the days
till I can be with you

 "Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is before you can meet again. And meeting again after a moment or a lifetime is certain for those who are friends."

"Fate exists but it can only take you so far,
Because once you're there
It's up to you to make it happen."

thanx for sharing to my challenge...

and as for you SS...
im gonna pretend I didnt see that post  
i remember several off-hand that should be in the running
want a hint?
think butterfly in a jar *winkwink*
later poet-gators

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

"What the caterpillar calls the end ...
The world calls a butterfly"

Good pick, Amy!


 And this I say to you: why? Why? Just tell me why, so I can understand. Why?

I swear we are in each other's head or

something...we are going thru the same

things. I feel for you girl, cause I know

how hard it is and how much I ache.I hope it

isn't the same intensity for you.I wouldn't

wish that on anyone.

Hang in there hon.

I meant to say... "great writing,Amy!"
