One Day In The Life Of A Lonely Lover. - Poem by Colleen Wright

It feels like a rainy, rainy day!
Everything seem sad and grey.
Will the jigsaw ever fit to be my way?
What do you think? What do you say?

The ache, the emptiness and the want
seems to be heavier and it does haunt.
It leaves me hungry for tomorrow's dawn
and in the meantime, my heart does mourn.

Trees, skies, hills, as does the earth,
the fish, the birds, all beings birth.
So too the happy and joyful mirth.
Without you – they have less worth.

If we could be together as one,
all night and until day is done.
To share the warmth of each morning sun,
a love stronger than ours there would be none.

In the meanwhile I thank God for what I've got,
the winter's beauty and the long summers hot.
For the knowledge of knowing that you love me a lot
I thank God again, and ask that he me 'forget me not'.
