Biography of Lora Colon
Lora Colon Poems
I was talking to the moon Just the other night, Telling him how much I admired his light;
If You Awaken Before Me
If you awaken before me And I'm crying in my sleep, Kiss me gently.... stroke my hair, Give me reason not to weep
Let It Rain!
You say and do the little things A woman never forgets; And when it rains, I smile when you say 'It's raining violets'
The Fear Of Love
Your love flowed gently over me, Like a wave caressing the shore, Touching me... then covering me... Leaving me begging for more
A Woman's Heart
Who really knows a woman's heart But the woman wherein it dwells, She guards its contents like rare jewels, Deepest secrets, she never tells
When Love Opened The Door
A promise of love came at twilight, Knocking upon this beggar's door, I stood trembling as it let itself in, Its charity shook me to the core
A Life Of Longing
My life is troubled with longing, So many dreams unfulfilled; Longing for love I never found And, most likely, never will
On That Day
On that day he came to me To sorrow I was bound, My burdens weighing heavily, What little joy I found
I Need You Now
A storm draws near, hear the wind howl, The moon denies me its light, On nights like this, I need you here, Oh love, I need you tonight
Quietly, Love Comes
Quietly, I hear you speak to my heart Like no one has done before; A silent voice, but I understand, All I can say is 'Ay, amor! '
The Man Of My Dreams
Each night I prepare for the ritual, When through my window moonlight streams, I say a prayer, then close my eyes And await the man of my dreams
Memories are congregating For their daily rendezvous, Dancing and circling 'round my mind, There is no averting their view
A Welcome For My Guests
My head is like a grand hotel, The guests arrive, one by one, Some with great accomplishments, Others are allowed just for fun
That's How Things Are
I've seen the darkness, I've lived with it, I'm traveling without a star, Some people never find the light they seek, But that's just how things are
I can't get away from the loneliness,
It hangs over me like a cloud,
It follows me like a stray, hungry dog,
It waits for me in the crowd.
It used to pant and claw at my door,
I resisted, but I knew it would win,
It found the key hidden under the mat
And now it just lets itself in.
