The Doorkeeper

Out of opening doors
pours the past into a hallway
and You come to sweep away
times' trial.  You who gave me
another life to love before you took your own.
Now here You stand, a Being
in the hallway of my mind,
the ether of My Man.

Do you see us too?
Can you see how old I have become
and the fine man that is our son?

Out of other doors flung open
step those I used to try and forget.
They're best left in their closets, forgotten.

But You, oh You are springtimes' salty tears.
If I could bring the Light of Life back into you,
the door of my heart would open again.

    Great sorrow inspires great art, great poets inspire love and loneliness. How I want to cradle your pain and cuddle a hush for you ... your talent in this one just draws me in. High praises around the lamp of faith and peace.

    Powerful sadness of loss here Sue. But the beauty and light of the man you love shines through even more so than the loss. What a love you must have shared. That last verse is overwhelming and how I hope one day you will be together again. Sigh. Hugs, Shar xoxo
