Your Thoughts overwhelm me.
They show me, your pride.
The hurt, and the pity, all hidden inside.
Your feelings, truly you do share.
With one who knows, the emptiness there.
Life is for giving, a sharing of kind.
Unburdens the heart, and even the mind.
To walk alone, all sights to see.
Empty reflections, meaningless for me.
Without one to share, no memories abound.
All life's ambitions will run all aground.
The search for a soul mate, a quest undertaken.
Broadens the smile, the heart reawaken.
Stepping in stride, a new world to face.
A woman beside me, Gods given grace.
A firesides charm, on wintry night.
Lovers glow, whilst holding tight.
Rekindling a spark, a light in the dark.
Echo's of music, love listen, hark.
A night to be cherished, a memory made.
Will last for a lifetime, for one's own parade.
To all love's hope, soft words will be spoke.
A union aligned, of body and mind.
In exile, I see resemblance of me.
A cry from the heart, to one whose apart.
In loneliness suffers emptiness pains.
Longing for loving comes forth the gains.
