A Place In The Sun - Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell

We walked together, side-by-side and hand-in-hand.
We laughed and talked about the times to be;
but then it ended and you couldn't understand
why I turned against you - you couldn't see.

You never knew what I was going through inside,
and I couldn't tell you. How could you know?
I was so frightened and hurting and full of pride,
and I dealt with it by letting you go.

My life was in shambles, such a foolish charade,
always wearing a smile upon my face;
but the truths were a lie and the roles were all played.
I was an actress in a lonely place.

A dwindling flower, I was broken at heart,
parched in the desert and lonely in soul.
My delicate petals were swiftly torn apart;
and I was divided, no longer whole.

You were my love-light, my hopeful beacon on high.
I only wanted to be in your arms;
but the thunder and storm clouds swept the blue-draped sky,
leaving me without your heart-warming charms.

Across the years, I have dreamed of your musing smile,
remembering what the two of us had.
I have closed my eyes, embraced you, caressed you, while,
at heart, I felt so forsaken and sad.

You have always lived inside of my dreaming heart.
You have always been my one and only;
and though life's circumstances have kept us apart,
I held you close when my heart felt lonely.

The bright sun is now shining upon you and I.
We are together and loving anew;
and the world is all right and I no longer cry.
My heart is now happy to be with you.
