Empty Hands

Pain exists inside the heart

That mourns the missing day

Emptiness, holding all that’s lost,

Fingers white, grasping air, slipping away

 

Darkness surrounds all we see, 

Shadows stolen from what could have been

Extinguish a flame, smoke filling our souls

As expectance is hidden and unseen 

 

Embers remain in the sorrowful ash

As the wind lifts up the light of our eyes

The heat reignites, in the kindling of love 

As the beautiful flames dull the cries

 

In all that we do, in all the we are

The fire will never be quelled

Insurmountable hearts, unfettered love

With a yearning of life to be held

..."Darkness surrounds all we see,

What a great line.

Great ending.

Paul.
