Written to a very special friend who was losing hope in searching for that special someone...

Included in my new book of poetry, 'My Secret Heart', under my pen name, Samishii Suzume~, "The Lonely Sparrow"...



At Last…


A lady of fine and exquisite beauty


Sat weeping alone one day,


Her tears drowning out the sun


Her eyes were hurt and glazed,


 


She sat crying many winters


And winters into fall,


Occasionally she whispered


‘I can’t stand this at all’,


So lonely she was looking


Downcast by the way,


 


Till a Stranger chanced upon her


One cold and rainy day,


“Why weep you," said the Stranger


"What tale have you to tell?”


She lifted her head and looked at him


As tears and rain drops fell,


 


“I’ve been looking, she began


For a soul mate strong and true ,


But all I found was heart ache


A piercing thru and thru,


“Can’t find him in the winter


Can’t find him in the fall,


Nor in the heat of summer


If he exists at all,


 


“I thought I’d found him once


But then my heart betrayed,


Was broken like an hour glass


From, discarded oaths that he had made,


“I pulled myself together


Willing, myself on


God gave me strength to live


But my heart sings such a somber song,”


 


The Stranger touched her shoulder


And smiled into her eyes,


“Weep no more Princess


Your time, for love arrives,


“I come to bear you greetings


From the One that you’ve


Whispered to,


Those silent prayers He’s answered


He has seen you thru,


“Hell it was, and heart ache


Treacherous and vile


But behind me comes your suitor


A man of elegance and of style


He will love you, Princess


As truly as you need,


A reward


For your prayers and faithfulness


And your unselfish deeds.”


 


His eyes were strange and warm


His lips shown an ironic smile


“Look over my shoulder, Princess


For he comes in a short while,”


And as the Stranger pulled his cloak


About him, and up the way he strode,


Past him she saw someone else


Coming up the road,


A tall and handsome gentleman


A tear within his eye,


“I thought I’d never find you


I thought that I would die”,


He pulled her close and held her


And smiled with trembling cheer,


“Thank God, that I have found you,


Thank God, you were so near,


 


“Long have I sought you


Someone to cherish and to love


Countless times I’ve prayed for you


Prayed to God above,


“Never satisfied with others


Faux jewels I cast aside,


I chose to search for you


As I labored and I cried…”


 


He cherished her and loved her


And was all that she did need


Both felt their prayers were answered


Both felt that they’d been freed,


As she held him fast and loved him


And he  filled up her need,


She saw the Distant Stranger


His cloak flowing in the breeze,


 


He was happy for her


Even from this distance


She could tell…


His wave said, “God bless and keep you”


And as he turned,


It said “Farewell…”


…Samishii Suzume~…

Such significant poems for your new book. This one is my favorite. It ends happily and though I am through with love after Tom died aug 17 07 I can still read about other's loves and it is so sweet a love poem I read with this. Love will always be in my heart but not needed as I have such good and loving memories of Tom.
