I often try someway to find
To tame the rioting in my mind
They're all gone -those dear to me
None left to listen-none to see
So who's to know what lies beneath
Unseen where anguished torrents writhe
Born of a choice I made one day
That's left me alone along my way.
There was a time when I was free
And smiled at whatever I could see
Waiting for that moment's call
When deep in love I would fall.
I turned and sudden she was there
The vision that left me unaware
Of everything and everyone
Radiant as the smiling sun
I lived each day and each night
Waiting only for her sight
Till the day she took my hand
Said she was going to a distant land
I tried but could not make her stay
She said she had to find her way
It had been nice, the time with me
But now she needed more to see.
Its decades now- but still I wait
My gaze fixed upon my gate
With a hope that I will see
Her smiling -coming back to me.
