Come To Me - Poem by Lora Colon

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

    This is one of the most amazing things I've ever read!
    I'll keep that in my mind while slipping off to bed

    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
