Your Awesome Presence - All I Need


I see in my reflection a picture of your lovely face
I hear in my voice, yours, so melodiously sweet
I feel you wrapped in my arms, when you’re not there
I try to make love to you everywhere in my dreams
But it isn’t as sweet as when you’re near and closer
Anything isn’t as better as when we’re one and together

I see in your heart that there’s a lot of pure gold
Each time I think of you, there’s a longing to hold
To draw you into my arms and tell you how I feel
To kiss your forehead and know for once that it’s real
Inasmuch as I try to fight the distance to be with you
I always break down and my days become so damn blue

I don’t know for how long this would continue my dear
But all I have to tell you is I live each new day in fear
Fear that I may never see you now that I have enough life
Fear that you may never ever become my dearest wife
Each time I’m alone in my most secret world and place
These thoughts when they come I can’t ever try to erase

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
