In this dark and endless night, spared by the glow of the moonlight
My mind is woken, my skin alert, my heart carried on its lofty perch,
Blistered by the miles at pace, I’ve walked in search of your gentle face
My feet, my wings, my very soul, are tethered by this hapless toll,
As time descends and spreads its years, I come to conquer all my fears
I know that whilst my body slumbers, my spirit will pursue life’s wonders,
This quest to find my one true mate, whose very essence is my fate
Will never cease until you’re with me, over barren land and swarming sea,
The sound of your soft lilting melody, will halt my raging liberty
Oh Joy! Oh Love! my heart rejoices, and quietens all those ceaseless voices,
That told me to settle for something less, whilst we both waited with bated breath
For that first synchronicity, when we finally meet our destiny,
Our love in all its glowing splendour, will bind our hearts and souls so tender
Our everlasting love and treasure, I’ll hold your hand until forever.

It always helps me to express my thoughts and feelings by writing. But until now I've not been brave enough to share anything. These offerings aren't necessarily connected with any one thing, although some relate to grief and loss. Some also relate to love, joy and some are just downright daft.
