A Space Amongst the Waters
There is a space among the waters|
Where I know you’d often go,
A place between two rivers
Where your energy still flows.
I lay there now, my darling
My body in that place…
And feel your life pass through me
With timeless speed and grace.
Till I sense the heat of summer go
From my body all around,
And I must eat the snow your rivers grow…
So cooling going down.
I’m becoming now these rivers
Foraging onward…winding in and out,
Nurturing the souls of all that come here
Searching for answers within and without.
I’ve seen you on my journeys
And I’ve prayed that god would let you know,
That I still love you deeply
And can not let you go.
I can still hear your infectious laughter
Faintly whispering in the wind,
As I try to stop the pain of losing you
From finally sinking in.
I’m missing everything about you…
Your lingering kisses in the morning sun
Your passion…for me and for life itself.
I miss tracing your smile with my fingertips…
And most of all, I miss your humble gift of self.
Even the birds still rally for you
From beneath the soft mist of early morn,
So that you may hear their soothing songs again…
By the waters along the riverside
Where their attachment to you was born.
Did you ever know that you were my hero?
The only one that I could trust with my heart?
You were my strength when I thought I could do no more.
What shall I do now that death is pulling us apart?
I don’t want your passing
To be the end of our beautiful love,
So, when I rest my head and sleep tonight…
It’s you I’ll be dreaming of.
In my dreams, I will wait for you
In our special place by the waters along the shore,
For you to come and tell me that you still love me
With all your heart forever more.
And then, you do come and hold me
With great tenderness, one more time,
You tell me that you love me
And that forever you will be mine.
You also tell me that you must move on
And you encourage me to do the same,
So that I might go on living my life
Without guilt or fear of pain.
I awaken alone in tears
My heart is aching with so much pain,
Then I realize that you were trying to help me
To say good-bye to you so that I might love again.
I will always keep you with me
Inside my heart where you belong,
But at this space among the waters…
I must say good-bye to you, my precious love,
And thank you…for helping me to move on.
