“ While I’m Alive ” ~ in that embrace ~


Before I reach

That lonely place,

Let me reside

While I’m alive,

Close by her side

In that embrace

Of each day’s best,

Which lets me hear

That joyous fest

Of her voice near,

Alluding to be clear

Love will survive,

Until I am no longer!

“ A Distant Voice ” ~ that beckons ~

I hear a cry

Tormented so,

Tears by the by

Do leave a wake

Of such dismay,

Mind has need

To find a way,

If but to still

A distant voice,

Whose forlorn cry

Allays not beckon,

Into the night

Its waning words

In dismal plight,

Wants restore whole

Thus begs relight,

Man’s dark lost soul!

“ While I Live ” ~ to not forget ~

 

The while I live,

Help me now

To not forget,

Afore I reach

I’m not to feel

Being near,

Or ever more

Able to hear

A voice so dear,                                                             

Nor taste again

The love of you,

The while I muse

Be cause regret,

Precious days

I might neglect,

To tell of ways

I loved you then,

The while I lived

This side of when,

Till I should reach

That quite place!
