DEATH STOLE YOU FROM ME

by Caroleanne Tol
(South Africa)

I've painted your name in the sky, but the wind just blew it away - I've cried and called your name - no letter or voice replied - I too have died inside, from thee everlasting, longing of you on this side - tears are now in vain, as I wait to awake, from this bad dream I'm living on this side - This in hope that you've not said goodbye, but just bye - you shall be back again - tears are a streaming - yet nobody understands, the chaos in my brain, as I call your name over - why be it death that's robbed me of you, the only true soul-mate whose ever lived - side by side, and inside me, who understood me - no matter the distance our daily circumstances parted us for - I just need your daily voice a plenty - of "hello my Angel" to make me feel complete, so simple it was to love, with thorns and all at times - yet you were the glove that fitted my heart complete - I care no more for the thing called love - for now nothing makes sense at all - death be the worst - it makes no sense for it has taken my very all - It's that very thief that stole you from me - I beg, I plead - you hear me still not - come what may, I too will love you to my dying day - again I ask in plea, come back my babe - you died too soon - we were too great for you to stay away - All I have are memories in mind that each time I long for you so - I close my eyes for awhile - for under my eyelids I've painted pictures just of you - so each time I close my eyes - all I ever see and feel is you - You said we would be forever round - but that is no more - for you broke the circle of our eternity, of hearts entwined - What do I do, where do I go - I hate death so - for it strikes at its very own clock - a thief no man can reckon with - Life they say has chapters - yours and mine have died a sudden death - but that's not the Stones tune I want to hear - for denial be now my only best friend, as I hang on to the unknown ideas - beyond life itself - this in hope, to breath on, just to find you once again - this to heal my shattered heart - for it be only you - the hand that holds the dagger - centered through my bleeding heart - Big as the sky, forever round, wide as the ocean - my love for you remains - imprinted in my veins - awaiting you - just to hold me once again.
