ON THE SAME BLESSED GROUND

When I see the moon, I think of you. When the flowers bloom I think of you but with the rain my teardrops fall. If only I could have given my all. I would have been the happiest dreamer that ever dreamed a dream. The sun would shine if only you could have been mine. I would have danced all the time and sang a song of love to you that to no one else I could ever do. Instead a hymn to God I sing of thanks and praise that He my dead heart did raise and for a little while I was aglow with love I thought I’d never know. But alas, sometimes I give in and grieve, my feelings on my sleeve. Heartaches and blood seeping through my skin so thin. And I pray forgiveness for this sin of nursing the pain I should hold within. But because I loved you so I knew I had to let you go. I will always be blessed by the day you came my way and loved me too like no one else could ever do. So, my dear. Do not fear. I will always be here thinking of you and seeing your face that from my mind I can’t erase. I just pray to God to please be kind and next time ‘round we’ll be born on the same blessed ground.

Hi Martin. Yes, Maria is really a "great poet" and I am honored to think that you think she and I could be in the same class. We are both romantics (and friends) for sure. Carole

What a marvellous read my dear friend, I feel your sadness in this write. Yet there seems to be a familiarity also in this love of which you speak. Could it be a 'Love' from a past life? I feel in this life we are forever seeking ' past loves and past experiences' to recreate it all over again but maybe one makes the journey to experience a different life this time around, if that makes any sense? I love your optimistic closing lines, I do believe you will manifest that wish. A definite fave for me....Maria hugs
