Dark Shadow Night

I’ve seen you as a friend on lonely nights
And like a child
I try very hard
To capture time with my hands
As special moments we share in verse
I reach out to you and you touch my heart
Some people will never understand
The meaning of love in poetry or song
I listen to the music in dark shadow nights
I see your face in the dark
And it fills my heart with delight
As I slumber in my thoughts
I look for you in the shadows
I want to grab and hold on to
The perfect melody of your song
That takes me to you in shadow lands
Wherever you are tonight!!
Once again I try to capture time
Like a little child in my hand
Just to be with you…
As you slumber in my thoughts
Thoughts gone far from here

Into silent land… dear gentle soul
You have taken me by surprise
You captured my heart

This has the longing for a soulmate like the heart longs to be home... the song of the restless spirit that roams the worlds, physical and spiritual, looking for that haven and sure anchor in another mirror image. And how often we think we have been mysteriously touched in such a way, but can't think who has done it or how... your words open up the Pandora's Box of the pursuit of the twin-flame... I think... not that I know anything much about such things, but seems this way to me. Filled with awe and wonder... and that sharp intake of breath! Beautiful, thank you. Kate xx
