~ O Dearest Love

O Dearest Love
Wherever you are walking
My heart is there,
My dreams are by your side.
Since you've been gone
The sun no longer rises
In blazing joy
To meet the coming day.
My heart will wait
In faith through all your wanderings
Until your feet
Shall lead you to my door.
You'll come to me
Across the years of longing -
Here in my arms
Your wanderings will end.
A hearth, a home
Will capture all your dreamings.
O Dearest Love
There is no day till then.

*Written to the tune of 'Danny Boy'
Poets start out to write a poem in a certain time-frame and during the construction of the poem the time-frame gets blurred. This is written to Maurice, of course. The 'Wherever' is in a parallel time-frame of the future. A future life in a paradise earth.

a very sad and deeply moving poem by someone who really feels the mounting loss of a loved one with the passage of time. But in the end it is only the living who can rejoin the dead when it is their time to depart this world. That is how I must reconcile my own grief

And Yet faith is notwithstanding, research answers, sincerely one can hope with the righteous man Job who declared, Job 14: 14 If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service Until my relief comes. One cannot deny the promise so clear and faithful even as he promised. John 11: 25 Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.

And if you write Poems in the evening affect the word selection. But Love Poems must be written in the morning or in the free time, noon time maybe.

Sublime! Everlasting love never separated in the spirit, always together, the flesh longing for its embrace of the dear one. Living eternally as one in the sweetest embrace. Adeline, your writing is incredibly beautiful and speaks to the core. Thank you! Kasia
