When I Am Away From You - July 27, 2011


When I Am Away From You

A normal day, I think not, when I am away from you.
This is when my heart races
and I talk too much with my eyes.
Who sees the places that wake up the world
when I walk beside you?
Even ancient stars stare subtlety in silence
at the easy way my thoughts exude
sweet memories of you.

Where are the little rooms where flowers blossom
when I look into the looking glass
that whispers love travels
between you and me?
Why is it when I look into the back of my mind
I find I am drinking in the essence of you
until I am filled with a happiness
full of color that takes
my breath away.

A normal day, I think not, when I am away from you.
Shade may cover the sun
but the memory of your eyes
sings the light back to me.
My beloved, the mere mention of your name
on my lips
takes away any restless shadows
that try and pass into my heart
you see.

You are inside of me as love splashed on the canvas of my day.
It makes no difference if my hand touches your own.
A normal day, I think not,
when I am away from you,
but I know,
I am never alone.

  2. I guess we are always with our loved ones - connections remain forever or until love has gone.

  5. You gave me a card several weeks ago at RHSF, but I just now opened your blog and it is very enlightening. You have quite a penchant for the poetic, written word. It makes me think you have deep seated passions yet revealed.
