You Used To Be There - Poem by Jolanta Gradowicz

You used to be there –
In a bird’s singing, in a flower...
I could feel you everywhere –
Your touch, your smile, your power.

You used to be there -
Everything was easy and clear,
My sorrows disappeared somewhere,
You were so close and near...

You used to be there -
A wizard of my most secret dreams -
A remedy for my despair -
With a magic wand and sweet dreams.

You used to be there -
In the many places and in many ways.
Today there is nothing to compare
To the silence over those lonely days...

    A very moving poem. I hear the subtle sadness of music playing in each line.

    Kind regards,
