Take me

Take me

A Poem by Jack...

Written for "The Raven" poetry contest

Take me

 

Once upon a midnight dreary, as I ponder weak and weary

Falling as a distant star comes reaching of my heart

Knees connect with fertile soil, darkness on this hour loyal

Twilight bid its fond farewell as evening spends its start

 ~

Chilled this open field a’ rest, facing east my own confess

Silence comes in wintered thoughts a’ calling to my mind

Lone is found this majesty, a’ born mine lonely eyes to see

There upon the heavens form this beauty I do find

 ~

Reaching for your open hand, actions of an empty man

Seeking but the wisdom that shall lead me to your side

Grasping at the frosted air, evermore I long to share

In amongst these feelings glowing bright this velvet sky

 ~

Take me, oh this soul does plead, thee shall be my every need

Endless I shall cherish every vision sent above

As a light does glisten free, when your smile my heart does see

To fend this winter evening with the warmth of your sweet love
