A BEQUEST TO MY LOVE

A BEQUEST TO MY LOVE

By: Elaine Randolph nee. Moreino

Where are you my love today
Who stays out of my reach?
I dream about the moonlit nights
We spent down by the beach.

Those happy years we shared together,
Wrapped in melody;
As time goes by and thoughts of you,
Make life a rhapsody.

And through the troubles in this world,
The grief, the pain and woe;
The rapture of my burning love,
Is a shield of Heaven’s glow.

The many miles that part us, Love
To me are but a dream;
And as the years go slowly by,
My love flows like a stream.

When you said, “Auf wiedersehen,
This is not goodbye”;
You sadly turned and walked away,
I don’t know where or why.

I miss you so my only love,
Why did you go away?
I’ve waited for so many years,
I’ll wait for you today.

Will I ever see your face
And hear your voice again?
I hope with all my heart and soul,
My prayer is not in vain.

And when “O, Love!” I call at last,
“I go now to my rest,”
Spare me just one moment more,
And hold me to your breast.

I hear your heart beat one with mine,
I dearly bless the dawn;
The birth of my eternal love,
My life, My Dearest One.

    Couldn't wait to read this because one of my best friends from school was named Elaine Randolph. When someone you love walks out of your life, it leaves you with so many questions, so much despair. Very moving poem. Best wishes, Carolyn
