Sadness fills my soul

often a silent weep

abundance of wishes

if only you were here

flickering of the candle

 shadows on the wall

desolate lonely surge

as fervent as the flame

burning with desire

so infinite and divine

always and forever

imagine you and me

eternity and beyond

as long as I can dream

  19. Is it nostalgia? is it longing? all I know is it feels like something (or -one) missing – it would be worse if we couldn’t keep them in our heart and soul. I’m glad you’re here, with your soulful words, images and music. Thank you, dear friend!

    • Thanks Ruth, I think we can write from that place of longing when it’s been a part of your life at some stage. I am not there anymore but can still feel the sadness of that specific time. Thanks for always being here my friend. I have not been around visiting so much as I have a deadline to meet but will be back to normal in no time 🙂 Sending you hugs and have a great weekend xxxx
