You – A Poem


I traveled many miles just to be with you;

Trying to absorb the many trials we went through.

Through the thickness of the dark, I saw you there;

just standing there without a single ounce of care.

When you looked at me, I couldn’t see,

A single trace of love in your eyes.

                 I turned away, to walk away, with so much on my heart to say.


               It was then you knew that I was through; I saw it on your face.

Too many years I’ve tried, so many tears I’ve cried,

No longer willing to live in denial.

For as long as the ice is cold; and the

desert dry; the salty tap of tears,

will never again flow from these eyes.
