“Light of Life”

By 30th June 2016December 9th, 2019No Comments

When drapes were drawn what light there was, twas you
No need of lamp (as perched on table round)
No need of candle’s glow midst ‘bill and coo’
Forever each (as bathed in sweet surround)
A room so filled with love, naught else could hold
Where thoughts on life didst vie for empty space
Such dreams we had pre-empting day’s unfold
Revealed in full by look which graced your face
Thru acts both kind and tender; won my heart
Tho I was wont to wear same on my sleeve
Within constraints of time (much spent apart)
Twud oft retreat where once we both did cleave
Tis here I then declare thru words once sworn
Henceforth to rise alone and face the dawn
