Time,

I have known you

You have known me

We shared life’s pain together

 

Once,

I was alone

I held but tears

Soul in despair--painful

 

Then,

I had empty hours

I had empty days

I had empty years

 

Time,

I knew not of life’s joy

I never knew love

Was forsaken--empty

 

Then,

Came a welcome time

And a joyous day

When awoke my dreams

 

Now,

Did I first gaze love’s eyes

How I swelled with hope

Yes, I felt whole, then

 

Time,

Now I know where joy lies

Time, now I know my heart’s place

And, now in such peace I can rest there

By her grace, my soul’s been rescued

 

Time,

I have found Love

I have found Peace

I have found Life

Now, I have Strength

Now, I have Dreams

I have such Hope

Now I can love

 

Now,

I have been saved

I am redeemed

I am restored

Now, I’m alive

Filled with such Joy

My life fulfilled

All through her love


...And how I love her

It is surprising what love can do! You lovely poem celebrates the joy and wholeness we feel when we find the 'right' one. I like the structure of your poem as it leads from 'time once' to 'time then' to 'time now' ending on the simple, but sincere line, '... And how I love her.' But we must remember that we can feel love in out hearts, even if there is no 'object'.!

what a lovely confirmation
of love and how fulfilling
it truly is; once two are
entwined in an everlasting
thread of a time span
beautifuly expressed..

Beautiful! As I read, I envisioned a caterpillar, a cocoon, the chrysalis, then the butterfly, that evolution to winged freedom where the soul can fly. Love has set you free. I love your wings.

Seems like when anything good happens
We want to tell time
It was all worth it
The wait and patience
Time is the currency of it all

I really like this piece Rick

Inspiring Rick, a beautifully woven lyric and one that gives hope for those reaching for such light. Nicely balanced and voiced, beautiful music as well, really haunting and heartfelt. A most potent and poignant song...

So what's the most important thing to say about myself? I guess the overarching aspect of my personality is that I am a scientist, an astrophysicist to be precise. Not that I am touting science.. more..
