Light Of Love - Poem by Danny Speicher

Seems like its been a thousand and one years
Since I last heard your sweet voice in my ears
And, a thousand and one miles do lie
Between homes that encompass you and I

The last time we spoke, you seemed to have peace
Your laughter came quickly and without cease
And, the last time we spoke you seemed to be
The same sweet girl that once sought after me

Alas, I know that you want nothing more
Than to be a friend, with no hope in store
For love to blossom between you and I
Yet, the hope that is within me won’t die

So, I pray that someday you might see me
In the light of love, I hope you to see

I often wonder if you understood
That I meant for naught more than my best good
And all that I ever wanted to do
Was just to be right there, guiding you through

To sing you a song when you needed peace
And lend an ear when you needed release
And to love you unconditionally
When ev’ry other fool had set you free

Ultimately, at the end of the day
I just wanted for you to hear me say
That you’re a princess, and deserve the best
Then again, I’m no diff’rent from the rest

So, I pray that someday you might see me
In the light of love, I hope you to see
