Until That Good Day - Poem by DAVID TERRY

Day after day finds me one day older
In deeper, in progress, in motion, in regions colder
Doing the best I can in a world of my making
Yet thinking back to our love’s undertaking
Of days gone by, of two hearts that we knew
Underneath shared covers and a sky of fall blue
Kept warm by what we shared between us
Not knowing what could come to either of us
Outside myself, gazing always inward
Wanting to feel you again, and still move forward
To a place we talked and dreamed and spoke of
Hoping still there will be our chance to partake of
Another day comes without you here
Today, tomorrow, two hundred more dear
I sit in the setting sun to let it yet warm me
Silently hoping to yet feel you beside me
There is not another for whose heart I would yearn
In fact, I could never away from you turn
Love still binds me to you, and bids me look east
Longing calls to me from there like a sad unchained beast
Living here without you is an every-day chore
One that never seems to end as every day becomes more
Violet skies of the sunset darken to black
Evening rising, daytime setting until I go back
You captivated my all, my soul, my heart
Only you live there now, in the very warmest part
Until that good day when again may we start together, as one, forever
