Your Return

Drunk in your nectar of love,
thirsty for more,
obliterating life’s reality
portrayed my journey so far
Hadn’t realized your handholding
was my reason to bloom
And now,
I am lost...
Cast away into the abyss of life,
I neither sight present nor future
Time has ceased to bear witness
to moments,
of a life once cherished,
by milestones carved in love
Longing for your return,
reminded of your vow
to stay within me,
gives me spirit anew
I move ahead heedfully,
a step at a time
until I find you
waiting with hand held out
to carry me out
of this world i so dread now
