My Heart Longs For You - Poem by Lora Colon

I see life's beauty all around me,
No clouds in my sky of blue;
A gentle breeze carries the song of a bird,
But my heart is longing for you

I gaze at the rivers and the valleys,
I walk through forests wet with dew;
I try to become one with nature and peace,
But my heart is longing for you

I watch children laughing and playing,
In their world, worries are few;
I want to escape to happier times.....
But my heart is longing for you

I prayed to the Lord for comfort,
He showed me the gate to pass through,
I wanted to go, but I couldn't leave,
My heart is just longing for you

Then the Lord said 'Let me show you, '
And Heaven came into full view;
My eyes filled with tears, again I refused,
It wouldn't be Heaven without you

And the wait for your love will continue,
My frailty makes it hard to pursue;
But this is a burden I must carry,
For my heart is just longing for you

    Love is so fulfilling, yet often so tantalizingly elusive, and leaves us without desire for anything else. Fine work, Lora.
