As you the readers, might be aware, I’m hugely influenced by the works of Leonard Cohen. This poem bares format similarities to Leonard’s poems/songs, “Love Calls You By Name” and, “Bird On A Wire”. I’m Forever grateful for Leonard Cohen’s profound impact on my writings and my life’s attitudes. This old poem was written when my Lady’s deteriorating medical condition and medical equipment and care needs, left me no alternative but to relocate myself to the other bedroom of our home, where upon, the music played and my words flowed.
Missing you, like a bee and her distant hive.
Like the sun with no sky.
Missing you, like the moon of last night.
Like my eyes with no sight.
Between the rain and my pain.
Between the calm and the storm.
Between the waterfall and the pond.
Between my heart and the beyond.
Missing you, like a swallow with no breeze.
Like a whale in the sea.
Missing you, Like the universe with no dark.
Like the strings in a harp.
Between the rage and your cage.
Between the winds and the waves.
Between the ground and your flowers.
Between the castle of your towers.
Missing you, like the beach with no sand.
Like the dove from above.
Missing you, like a mother and her newborn child.
Like a lonely stag in the wild.
Between the river and the broken levee.
Between the kiss of your hips.
I know you can hear me,
I know you can see me,
I know you’re near,
Yet you’re far away from here.
