Somewhere along the way


Somewhere along the way,
I found your truth,
such a treasure to behold,
among the many misses;
you were the one that,
I was looking for;
the one the waves seek,
from off the ocean's shore.
you were the harbor,
where my ship was safe;
secure, nestled in your arms,
where the four winds
cannot chafe,
the passage-way that few
can find,
where love's mysteries
can now unwind.
Somewhere along the way,
you became my friend, my mate,
we formed a bond, that time,
it could not break;
and I forgot the weary
times that passed,
when love was snatched
and I was left within
its wake.
When roads were dead ends,
when the cries you heard
were yours;
when life was just a
puzzled maze,
and a series of
revolving doors.
Somewhere along the way,
you became my anchor,
the life raft tossed-
to those afloat;
you let me climb upon
your ladder,
into your warm and
comfort-being boat.
You caught me before
I had time to drown,
now in your love,
I'm born anew and found.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
