I Saw You

to the semblance of a thought


I saw you in the sunlight
So bright and amber lit
It touched my soul to soften
In ways it so thought fit
So tarried with the burden
Sequeled I ventured right
Alas! A harried thought to rule
It wounds my feel to fight

I saw you in the twilight
The stagger in your voice
I fretted for the pain in you
Unknown to all the noise
The greyed and harassed looks
They frittered as a spell
Alas! A wounded thought to phrase
Resounded in so well

I see you in the darkness
Around so homeward bound
In close and secure quarters
Uncaring to the sound
The brighter days have sobered
And all that remains now
Are kind and trusted hands that show
Your way before a bow

If life has shown you're wiser
It is so often said
The realms of tell tale thoughts
Weave clusters fore we're dead
