Sweet 6:15 Still…Posted: July 13, 2013
All that surrounds me seems well adjusted,
And the harmonious silence of the night stirs up recollections;
Wherein I hear your heartbeat.
The sweetest music, the softest drumbeat.
Remember when I used to rest my head beneath your breast with my ear
Listening to your rhythm?
When all that mattered was us,
When we risked everything;
When it was worth living.
Even these winter beaten trees still manage generosity and give me air,
So please give me something so I know you’re still there…
Because although I live, it’s for nothing if not for you…
What’s the purpose of a life of imprisoned passions?
Yet there’s hope of flowering for the tree when the seasons change,
Hope that the stars will once again light up the sky when the clouds clear.
But does that spell hope for us?
Every one seems better matched
Because you’re not next to me.
I remember you once said that if it had been me you’d have adopted my name…
Even if distance is in the way; the memories are not faded.
Just preserved…whilst I wait and hope for reunions belated and happier days.
And although the compass that brought me to you,
Is for the time being making sure you remain lost to me,
Somewhere southeast …
Know that I miss you still.
