Searching for Her Love

Searching for Her Love

A Poem by Kia
"

The ballad of a young woman yearning to get her lover back after he left during a cruel blizzard

"

On a cold and harsh winter night                              

When nature had no peace

Lived a kind and handsome young couple

Their struggles did not cease

 

But although not rich with money

This couple had great wealth

For they had the least of dollars

But their love was strong with health 

 

Still, on this day they were desperate

And the young man needed a career

But his princess cried, “No…I will go.

Please! Oh, please stay here!”

 

But the young man promised to return for her

His eyes telling no lie

And so he stumbled down to the door

And with this he waved, “Good-bye.”

 

Every night the girl would wait

She longed to hold her prince

He had left with a good-bye hug

And she hadn’t seen him since

 

Tim e went by and the months did pass

Along with them the seasons of…

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall

Yet still no sign of her love

 

And each night the young woman cried

Sleepless in her own tears

Yearning for her lovers voice

To whisper, once again, in her ears

 

So on another harsh winter night

When her heart severely hurt

She went out into the cruel blizzard

Wearing nothing but a shirt

 

The wind did not show mercy

And the snow plunged from above

Still the girl continued on her journey

Searching for her love

 

She searched the hills and woods

The weather getting more tense

Yet she found…not even a sign

Of her cherished and loving prince

 

But then she grew very weary

Her body weak and ill

So she curled up beneath the smallest tree

Ever silent…ever still

 

And from above came an angel

Brilliant and safe from natures harms

He lifted the girl up

And held her in his arms

 

He caressed her gentle skin

And kissed her frozen, sallow cheek

Then she opened up her eyes

But, oh, she did not speak

 

She looked at him and smiled

The most joyous of all grins

Despair had left her forever

And would never return again

 

The angel flew her to the sky

And blessed her with a kiss

Then he whispered in her ear

“I kept my promise.”

Wow this is beautiful Kia. Really its really good. I like how you wrote this poem. There is only one suggestion I would like to make. The line that reads, "Tim e went by and the months did pass". It should read, "Time went by and the months did pass". Otherwise everything looks great. You really kept me on the edge of my seat as I read through the poem.
