You'll Be With Me, Always.
by J. Sandy
Age Group: Adult
You'll Be With Me, Always.
The breath of summer still filled the tiny space
When curtains parted inviting in the breeze
The candle flickered, resisting the embrace
Then winked in answer as shadows it would tease.
Outside, the night, filled quiet timeless twilight
With whispers, sweet, to while away the hours
Dark satin shapes beneath the brilliant moonlight
Now standing watch, entranced by sleeping flowers.
Upon the bed, oblivious to the instant
She lay asleep, her passions now expended
The velvet warmth, so close and yet so distant
No mem’ry where each had begun or ended.
What does it mean? How can one say: “I love you?”
Will that convey a feeling so unending?
Or can we speak and read in eyes as you do?
Or just go on, denying and pretending?
"Oh gentle grace, please let me be not blind.
Teach me to see with an accepting heart.
See love’s return which seldom is in kind.
Teach me a way so we may never part."
Tonight again, the shadows and the moonlight
Remind me of the wish I made so often.
The moment passed, as silently as midnight
Returning to my heart, where you've lived since then.
-- J. Sandy
Author's Notes: We are beings of spirit, caught up in the moment. We wear our corporeal raiment as if IT were eternal. We own nothing as life starts, and this is our fate at the end. For it is our fate in the in-between time that we should forget and play our parts on the grand stage. The spirit is real. The actions and emotions are real; and the illusions, they are but the daily wages of the spirit. I salute you each and all, fellow actors and travelers. This poem is but a small part which was mine to perform and feel in our grand play. Sandy
