Letters To Her Car

Letters To Her Car

I used to get up in the mid of winter before she would leave for work
And there on the frost laced windows of her car, is where I would leave my mark

I’d tell her about the day I had planned, or just a simple reminder
That no matter what this life had in store, in my heart is where I could find her

She was a beautiful thing. An angel bequeathed to us, placed here by a mightier hand
Though mine for only a little while tis but the blink of an eye for one that’s eternal

We all know that were here for a time, our minutes borrowed from the hour glass sand
Our hearts though two, were twined as one, as if born from something fraternal

And though her touch in this world, l will not feel again, I can remember that this life is 
And sometime soon, as the immortal would count it, once again I’ll feel her heart beating

When the sand in Chronos’s glass runs its course for my life and Lachesis can cut her line
Ill No longer be held by the flesh of this world, and I’ll be unfettered by this thing called time

But for now I keep searching for destinies book, a different canvas to pen my hearts meaning
For that thing in the driveway that she once drove is now useless to put forth my word

What I want for now is a window to heaven to speed to her the thoughts I’ve been keeping 
That I found you once, and though it cost me my life to find you again that price I will afford

    Powerfully and passionately penned! Beautiful piece, but wrangle not for some will believe that there are windows in this world beginning to open... Depends oon personal experience and belief, but seeing is believing. I hope the write is not personal to you for I can feel the pain of the piece... Thankyou for your wonderful words today... Here's to joy, peace and hope...

    This is touching..I feel that maybe you have lost the love of your life to death but not exactly sure that this is of what you write..If so, you have my deepest sympathy..My spirit was lightened when I read that you know of her destiny and yours..I feel that she knows of your love and these messages...I was delighted that you stopped by my blog..My son is a grown man who lives alone..He is the one that has chosen to leave off the Aleve..Something about it effects the liver..Sara

    Hi Ryland.This is beautifully written and so moving.Also true, in the indication of earthly things that still bind to those that are gone.Although we all enjoy the material things in life there is no doubt what matters to us most is love.And you have expressed this so well this in this lovely piece.I find some of your lines very emotional and yet the whole is a pleasure to read.Thank you.
