Evermore

Do you feel me touching you through time?

Gentle the light shines on worn wooden board

Where you dance unseen

Yet I have always been, closer for holding in my heart, your motion

Through the filament of hours, our bond unbreakable

You … as long as you breathe and afterward too

Shall ever feel me standing, holding you up

Not the string pulling you to act

I am instead, arms supporting your effort

To Slough off the grief and find surity in one heart

In this ransacked world we call ours, you are home

You are the northern star

You burn behind my eyelids when they are shut

You tattoo your pigment into mine

We are woven together throughout time

When I reach, you leap, light as startled spring deer

Joining beneath the shade of night, mixed into each other’s color

I know nothing of being without you

For all of myself began

The day I saw you turn

And smile with knowing

You

Who is dearest

Shall never long for nurture or companion

I am the locket around your neck

I sleep in your dreams guarding yet

Any that may hurt you, let them try

For you are

My celestial bride

No distance or passing shall thwart

Energy recognized, even in death

Behind you I shall evermore walk

  1. This is a love song…

    “You are the northern star

    You burn behind my eyelids when they are shut

    You tattoo your pigment into mine

    We are woven together throughout time”

    I know no other way of describing it. To know this kind of pure, lifelong companionship must be priceless.

  2. You write words that deeply touch my soul, your title here beautifully befits your lovely poem, and I’m teary here, reading your finale.
    “Energy recognized, even in death
    Behind you I shall evermore walk”

  3. Sometimes that’s the hardest thing about social media, the fanatic surge and rush of attention for things that deserve no attention and complete ignoring of that which does. At least we have the moon.

  4. My friend do not forget I want to get a hard copy (paperback?) of your poetry book I have not forgotten just waiting on you xo Thank you for your lovely appreciation of what I write
