Dear one, dear heart

A moment fresh

Amidst the darkness and the clamour

is all I beg


We creatures of the night

so starved of heaven’s light

Our hearts so calloused and

incomplete, so tainted


Cold and hard

are worn of courser habit

Are born of regret

Into this darkened globe


I spoke the guarded prayer 

which caused the action start

Which sparked the engine’s stir

Which rid me of my care


Hot spears ran my cheeks

As love caught my heart

And causing me to share

the troubled nightmare


I lived thru’ and beyond

Creatures of night then

who travel to the high seas

Who sing the songs of joy


Relieved then now to know

I, a soldier to the end

since my heart was won

of passion, pride and urgent


This saviour’s love to know

to know so surely

May in this rhyme I find

the prayer that to the end


I be the soldier of a friend

So lovely and content

My prayer will never end

Dear heart, loved heart


I speak from air so rare

That my entire reason

will ever be to guide

you on your journey fair

    a beautiful work. my favorite part, I think, is the soldier imagery. someone who puts their life second to love, in this case. and also the promise to guide her on her journey. so heartfelt and warm. as always, your work touches my heart.
