Best Elizabeth Wesley Poems

+ Fav Poet


Forlorn are they who can't find love
When aching tears hide smiles;
Drifting through life on their weary way
As lost and lonely sad exiles.

Forlorn are they whose hungry lips
Kiss vacant air but never touch;
The tender mouth of one they love
Lingers there to suffer much.

But dear to me is the one I trust
When I see that look in his eyes;
I will hold his hand throughout the day
And in the night find true paradise.

Not for me should one feel grief
For in him I've found my light;
I'll walk and hold his hand by day
And sleep in his arms at night.

A collab with my friend "Danny boy" Kearley

    I really like this poem. Trust is important-and the way you worded it touched my heart to find the light within someone as well, but not to linger too far away from myself to find-because I'm not alone. Thanks LEGANDWRITER

    This is a beauty, Elizabeth!:) Feels shrouded and searching in the beginning, but the last verse nicely brings it together. Thanks for your gracious comment on 'the storm', all the while I'd been hoping the wind would come up and send that spider sailing into the water so it could be eaten by a fish! Best wishes, Mikki

    This is so much more than I was expecting from the title! Well done. Especially the second verse about a kiss ". . . hungry lips Kiss vacant air but never touch. . ." Very forlorn indeed. - Chuck

    Not unlike a key, a friend can be an open door in life. To fill the heart with renewed joy each time they quell the strife. I hope you know how you make me glow when you respond in kind. And how your love can soothe my soul and ease my troubled mind.
