Poem: Lakeshore Sunrise


It is the wee small hours of the morning
The last taste of darkness.

As a fresh brew of day dawns ahead,
The stars stare down and flicker.

One more reminder of heaven’s grace.

I am drawn here
Because of the romance of nature.

I am looking out to the clearing sky
Because I remember you.

She’s rising,
That bright star of warmth eternal.

She’s shining,
Like a golden orb of sweet comfort.

Wrapped around me
Are these thoughts of us.
Sitting here,
Holding each other,
Questioning the lives we’ve been granted.

I guess,
I wanted this time to last forever
But as the lake shimmers
With the sun’s reflection,
I see the ripple effects of our memories.

I can see us there.

How beautiful you are to me
In my mind’s last gleaming

With the glow of time slowly approaching,
I refuse to feel left alone.

For once, we did cross over these entanglements.

Our hearts heavy with burdens,
Longing to breathe
With a sigh of relief.

And now, the light breaks forth
And I gather my thoughts,
Knowing that I may never hold you again
To watch a new day unfold.

Upon the earth,
I take my leave,
Once last time.

Maybe to return
To the place
Where two star-crossed lovers
Found each other
And lost their love
Along the way.
