I lie within the shadows of the night as solemn winds
by Sheri Walters
whisper thoughts of you
Fleeting memories dance about the reveries of my mind
as I ponder this all-consuming restlessness
Such desolence do I feel in the winter of your absence -
I lie in deepest thought, pining away with sensless grief
The hollows of my soul are touched by the sunlight that is you...
Oh, how I grieve in your absense
Such wretchedness I have never encountered
For in your absense, my heart sings not....
But I shall wait patiently, with a silent tear, until once again
you take me into your arms - the place I cherish most next to Heaven
