Broken HallelujahA Poem by Doodley
Woke upon a Sunday morn,
In the shining light of the Autumn dawn,
That brought the heavenly vision into view.
Looked into your smiling face,
As you stood there in your dress of lace,
Like Aphrodite in all her divinity born anew.
I wondered how it could ever be,
That you opened up your heart for me,
And gave me all your kisses of morning dew.
Before too long that sun went down,
And thunderclouds brought on my frown,
As the darkness in your eyes enveloped you.
You bowed your head with eternal grace,
And turned and flew far from my place,
And left me all alone and feeling blue.
And now i sit upon this lonely hill,
In the darkening night in the Autumn chill,
Pondering all the things that i must do.
I must get away from this haunting place,
Pack my dreams inside my travelling case,
And burn all the roots of love i grew.
For there will never be another dawn,
Like i saw that blessed Sunday morn,
As long as my inner eye still pictures you.
For i just know that i can't go on,
Listening to this Broken Hallelujah song,
And have it seep into the pores of all i do.
So for this to you is my last goodbye,
As i spread my wings and soar to sky,
An adieu for all of you the chosen few.
And perhaps we'll meet again someday,
When my soul does shine like a Summer's day,
And drowns me in a rainbow-coloured hue.
Who should care should a poet die,
You have my poems it's time to fly,
Goodbye, Arrivederci and Adieu.
