Forever One

Forever One

A bright night, the moon is full,
Looking at you; an Angel standing next to me.
Seeing our bright-dreams, reflected in your dark-eyes,

Your smile bringing hope into my life,

Dreaming of our days to come,
Days as bright as the morning sun.
Days as dark as storm clouds with love always chasing away the rain.

Standing here, holding on tight to each other's Souls,
Our love overcoming all,
Feeling the winds offate, pushing us closer,

No power in the universe will ever separate our Souls,
We will always be forever one,
Love.

When I was born, you waited behind a pile of linen in the nursery, and when we were alone, you lay down on top of me, pressing the bile of desolation into every pore. - ITALIAN: Quando nacqui, tu aspettavi dietro una pila di biancheria nella nursery, e quando eravamo soli, ti sdraiavi sopra di me, spremendo il fiele della disperazione in ogni poro.
An expansive, transparent honesty envelopes these wonderful words; great poem.
Jane's dialogue with depression carries a powerful message and as Wilhelmina Jenkins notes, should be read by anyone who has suffered from depression. I would like to add that it should also be read by those who do not suffer from depression, so clear is the picture she paints. On the flip-side, I love her poem 'Otherwise' as it describes in a moment of clarity the gratitude of which we all need to be reminded. lmg
A breathtaking insight into the pain of depression and the exhilleration when it finally lifts.Some experiences can only be communicated poetically, and Kenyon does a beautiful job here. Should be read by everyone whose life has been touched in any way by the horror of depression.
this poem is the story of my life one of my favorite poets
