Heavenly Longing

Pearly moon, show thy face,
Reflect thy light on these waters;
So halcyon they are right now.
Lead me to him who awaits me,
A star by your side was my love.

Rising tides embracing the wind,
Take me when enraged is the sea;
There many miles below, a dock.
A vessel so fine, rests there alone,
My love waits there, for wedlock.


Dark night, I pray, engulf me,
I wish not to see the light again;
My wait, it shall not end soon.
Only a star, I wish now to see,
It is he, smiling beside the moon.

Wedlock in heaven, for us waits,
Just get to his side soon, I must;
For his wait has been very long.
Just a moment more, here alone,
Then by his side, where I belong.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
