lightA Poem by Allen Smuckler
Edited and changed for the inclusion in "Unknown Journey: A Voyage through Time".
You’ve missed the message I sent today
and lost the passion within.
You’ve left me in a moment of panic
and now there’s no return.
I always knew which way I’d turn
straight forward toward the light,
but moving forward is the easy part
it’s leaving the past that’s hard.
So drown my love in the tears of shame
for floundering in the abyss.
How can we salvage what we had
when the ship has left its port.
Take time to not forget our life
from then until forever.
It’s not my choice to end this race
I’ve simply lost my light.
And never shall I lose from sight
the message of above.
I’ll always know and feel the heat
from the power of our love.
Once again the ship embarks
on a voyage without me.
I spend what’s left of precious time
and think with all my might,
what may have been and still can be
once we ignite the light.
