A Longing Heart

Why have you hidden your face from me

My heart longs for you, an unheard plea

You are so distant, between us an impenetrable barrier

Sadness overtakes me, gloom seeps into my interior

When again will I feel your warmth on my face

To be uplifted when you arrive from your distant place

So many days spent waiting, finally they are done

Spectacular beauty is yours, welcome back shining sun

    Thanks for the positive comment. In the middle of a snow storm awaiting the arrival of that last line again.
