what will i do?..

just a weary mortal making my way
thru this place we call world

one of these days i wonder
if i will be able to see the
aura that burned so 
bright ...
and how it pulled
you toward me

and i try, 
and you know
i have....

then the pain,
yes the pain
gives me away

i want to love you like
the used to days

and i pray,
dear God, just give
me one more time
to sleep in your arms

i want to stop
the worry

to stop the pain

is it my life to keep on
being ill ? ....  yet wanting with
ever fiber of my
body.....

just to dance.  

yes, just to dance
one last time.

janetta

for t.

    What a huanting poem. I love the way it is constructed. Reading it, makes one think of falling downward through clouds. ~Peace~Gar Thank you for your kind reviews.
