Lingering Afterglow

 

 

Walking this lane

your promise I recall

so I sit to sing our song.

 

Alone this darkest hour without you

am broken, am scared, trouble is here

my tears drips again

my sin brought me here.

Could my sin let me go

or wait in painful weakness

of my cold darkness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

See The Moon

 

 

See the moon

alone this eventide

rightly above, beyond the fence.

 

By this jamb

memories swim in

of how you sing

clap, dance and render

panegyric with your honey tongue

to earth’s lantern.

 

Now age has won us

awaiting morning of a new life

yet lantern not vague.

 

We shall come and go

so shall she too

yet this time tomorrow

she shall be here – too

but till when?

 

See the moon

alone this eventide

rightly above, beyond the fence.
