Lost In The Awakening


You drift out of reach

In my lonely heart shadows roam amongst the light
and I hear your voice echoing beneath my dreams
for just a moment there is nothing that I fear
then a gentle touch follows over long seconds

When the silence roars I feel a window open
a breath of jasmine a world away from this place
and a soft sweet song floats in on an errant breeze

I am ankle deep in the shallows of longing
almost too lovely too painful to be endured
like sky meets the sea we are forever entwined

In numberless ways the promises between us
haunt our restless souls
the ghost of your touch like a soft awakening
a candle flickers, again the pain of parting

Nothing left to grasp and I am falling once more
descending like a lost leaf into the beyond
I cling to your memory, the tide tugs unseen

It is darkly beautiful just before the dawn
grief weighs heavy upon me
you drift out of reach, fragile and ever fading

Lost in the awakening
