This Heart.

This Heart.

A Poem by Fay Slimm

This Heart. When I, led sleepless through uneasy dark sigh lonely for thee. When moon rides high its wide curved arc and cold falls crisp on flower and tree. When sun bids farewell to skyline's blue and a mist covers first starlight with dew how I sigh for thee. When I, dreaming walk lone ocean waves again sigh for thee. When wind rides high the sea's briny lace and a moon turns pale its filters on me. When Neptune roams his wild-water hall and foaming white horses rise only to fall how I sigh for thee.
When I, wakened bone-tired before dawn sigh weary for thee. When sun rides high as day becomes worn and noon lies basking over calmed sea. When distance between us taxes this heart and needed commitment keeps love apart how I sigh for thee.

Ah how the heart yearns when separated from a love either by distance or death. A wonderful write Fay. Love and nature combined in these lines demonstrate your skill as a poet. Beautifully done.
