Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Come To Me


Come to me when the river rises
And all hope is swept away;
When it crosses the threshold of your heart,
And darkness overtakes the day

Come to me when the night refuses
To let the day begin;
When you feel defeated and can't go on,
I'll gather you safely in

Come to me when your heart admits
How empty your life has been;
And loneliness appears at your door each night
Though you never invited it in

Come to me when the Lord of Love
Refuses to hear your prayer;
When sadness wraps itself around your heart
And holds you in its snare

Come to me before it's too late,
We're running out of time;
My life has always been bound to yours,
And our steps will always rhyme

And when you come to me, my love,
You'll delight in a brand new day...
The blaze of the rising sun, revealed,
As the stone is rolled away

    The title of this poem reminds me of the old song by Johnny Mathis, a haunting, hypnotic melody; like your poem. I like it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
