Shadows filled an empty life
Just looking for some peace.
Life ruled an empty house
Succinctly void of belief.
Torn, ripped, and taken away
She never really fought.
It took everything within her
To keep what she had bought.
Yearning for something better
She finally gave up one day
Nothing could penetrate the walls
Nobody would find the way.
Horses run across a field
Leave the place quite lost.
She’s a feeling this air is broken
For there is such lack of frost.
Up to her neck in what she wanted
But broken from disbelief.
Tears left her trying harder
She was simply sick of grief.
Flowers bloomed around her house
It reminded her of a better time
Before she felt required to protect
Far before his crime.
In blew beautiful winds of change
In the form of blind trust.
First she does what she can
Then immediately, they must.
Nothing comes in the form of a question
To them, it is their answer
Nobody is in charge here
Much like the hidden cancer.
They were sitting on the beach
She was restless
He was calm
She had a loving hand to hold
He lost his to her long ago
He ponders and asks the question
She’s been waiting months to answer.
His mind is so full it is hard for him to explain
But if you give him half a chance you’ll recognize he wasn’t to blame.
She, so taken by him and his soul
That every thought begins and ends with him.
He is lost; he is found
But yearns to be in control.
She answers his beautiful question
As beautiful tears roll down her face.
As heavens turns us away
The stars will not let us stray.
Embrace the unknown
Throw caution to the wind
Allow nature to wash over you
Say everything free
Do not worry
As we are only passing through.
Crashing waves on a beach
Leaves nothing to speculation
All the love they held in for years
Now part of dedication.
These two came along
It was straight from above
Right about the time you give up
Love comes along.
