the window

looking back I tried to see you

but the window cracked

your image faded quickly from me

the room around turned black

as days went by-I tried to find you

but you’re no longer there

bitter tears fell from blind eyes

my sad cries filled the air

cursing light, I prayed for dark

where once again I’d see

your smiling face-there in my dreams

and you would still love me

… so time marched on through cloudy days

and somewhere down in time

I’d feel you like a slow, warm breeze

float gently through my mind

what can heal the wounds inside

and what will make me whole

the window cracked-I’m all alone

the darkness claims my soul

then by chance, I turn around, and

though the window cracked

you’re there again-love without end

our love lives - amen.
