Come Back My Love - Poem by Alan Strand

Come back my Love
For cloudy skies grey
And bright leaves fall
When I reach into the night
And your gentle hand
Is not there

Come back my Love
For the lonely loon
Wails your primordial name
As I tread a dark trail
Without your arm
To share

Come back my Love
For Heaven’s tears
That dance and splash
On my uplifted face
Reminds me of
Your teasing kiss

Come back my Love
For the cold wind bites
And ruffles my hair
I reminisce your fingers
Stroking me into
Night’s sweet abyss

Come back my Love
For the Autumn moon
Clears the highest snow-capped peaks
And looks everywhere for you
As I longingly do
In soft twilight

Come back my Love
For the inky darkness
Is too black and deep
To allow an unbroken sleep
As I silently drift
Through the dead of night

Come back my Love
For the rising sun
Treats me to pink pastels
And bathes me with
A warm embrace
Like you used to

Come back my Love
For Mother Earth
Explodes to Spring’s awakenings
But pales to the true Love
That I am destined
To show you

(For Carla,1998/10/26)
