A poem

I need to rest, to close my eyes
And pull away from life’s surprise
The necessary allure of knowing
that I’m alive.

My love’s not lost, but it’s not new.
Within my being, a bond that’s true.
Something I’ll wait for and know is in view —
The sunrise which comes to show me you.

You’re not icy, but far away
Pulling in amidst the fray
Wondering what I want and need to say
But I only feel to see my way.

No fighting, no hurt or pain…
