A message from across the pond

Written by: Thvia Stein

It felt like Christmas 
on that late September night 
in the airport waiting anxiously 
for you to step off the plane.

I'm still recalling 
that first time I saw your face 
and all the things you ever said, 
they still fill me full of life.

And I wonder why, 
as I close my eyes to sleep, I still
feel happy, though our love is
forced to wait.

So I say your name 
out loud for all the stars to hear 
and for the wind to whisper to you,
everything will be alright.

And I hear your voice
in the morning rays of sunshine
breaking through the night storm
giving me courage

to face another day 
of being parted, having to hold
our hearts at bay until the time
our promises are made
