Awake

Fully awake – eyes open
At the break of dawn
The ray of light shines down

Another day comes forth
Relentless and merciless
As the sorrow deepens

A mourning unlike, another
A loss, yet not a loss – gone
Silently the heart is breaking

Be there no reason to smile
Days – Nights, all the same
Long gone, miles away

A distance painfully etched
“Mea culpa”, this I know
Memoirs, call through time

One-step forward, a chance
Two steps back, withdraw
In all that is well-known

In a world I love, my haven
This impenetrable barricade
In exception to only one soul

Dare to define these emotions
Unleash them in a love so pure
As peace sets into our essence

The smile never fading
Those soulful piercing eyes
Penetrating, make-shift barrier

Where does one go from here?
Beneath moonlit skies, waiting
A calling, a whisper – a voice

In the final hour, known is love
By no means subsiding, over
Awakened, only to drift in time
