For Absent Friends

entry picture


Somewhere in between,
The waking and the dream,
I can feel you close to me.
Just before times hands,
Reshape the desert sands,
I can feel you reach for me.
In the blink of tear stained eyes,
Watching, weary, to the skies,
I can hear you call to me.
In the breaking of the dawn,
In the dew upon the lawn,
I can hear you cry for me.
In the bright rays of the sun,
In the new day just begun,
I can feel you warming me.
In the beating of my heart,
That once was torn apart,
I can feel you healing me.
In the shadow of the past,
From the dawn, unto the last,
I can feel you smile for me.
As I take my last deep breath,
As I fear the grip of death,
Will you please just wait for me?

Darren, this is poignant, very well written in the triplet form. It has a consistent,smooth rhythm, clear, easy rhymes and melodious words to complement the beauty of your thoughts.
