Lonesome of the Heart

‘tis nothing at all
akin to fairness
this lonesome of the heart
sharp sting, vague ache
this heart it breaks
still beats therein
this lonesome of the heart

all around you
love resplendent lies
still sunshine comes
from hie the skies
the birds they sing
twittering merrily
like an old song
now a lost rhapsody

faint is the call
of violin’s play
down long hall
this lonesome of the heart
pensive yearning
no one’s learning
from this, this
lonesome of the heart

‘twill never be better
as there is no other end
‘tis forlorn it is, my friend
this lonesome of the heart

so I will wait
so you won’t know
in winter’s gale we shall
take a walk
while we silently talk
the bitter frozen air
my tears shall meet
and match my soul’s sigh
you won’t see it

‘tis nothing at all
akin to fair
this lonesome of the heart
vague stinging ache
breaks heart rare
but still will beat therein
in this lonesome of the heart



Karilea
If I whisper, will you listen?...
I would rather be silent and write, then speak loudly and be bound.

In the lonesome of the heart
There is a small and lovely part
That is the very soul and core
Of everything thing that you adore

And there horizons yet to be
That stay upon a southern sea
And Islands that you seek as shoal
To wrap around and warm your soul

Some say it is a fantasy
But in that dream is ecstasy

Sunshine,
   Glad you wrote this!  Sy is a wonderful, talented man who puts a smile on my face almost every day.  I enjoyed your poem and his beautiful reply to it, as well as others response.  This is such a good atmosphere, a place where people express their hearts and share with one and other.

   Thanks again,
         cathy

A most amazing poem....written like a master, heck, not like a master, by a master.
Makes me proud to be your sis!

Wish I were Sy! Lucky guy. Aw Karilea that was lovely. Thank you for sharing with the rest of us.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Sy was a great inspiration to me...
and he taught me a lot by example.
