The Span of Our Dreams
Such a silent goodbye when you suddenly left,
my voice fell away from your emptied chest.
You vanished in moments from the dust of this world
My heart close by, in love’s womb simply curled.
How could your soul take such passage to go
Without word or sign; to have let me know.
I held your dear life in my own hearts wing
With the span of our dreams for each sacred thing.
Time seemed forever, it walked in God’s might.
I never believed that you could vanish from sight.
This isn’t goodbye, for love lives ever still
This heart is bound with such wingspan to fill.
Come, let prayer be blushed with joy’s love,
holding, keeping and blessing from Above.
Give peace to my path, to my heart and my hand.
Its time now, I know, to mind God’s command.
