Poetry: The Call

The Call

In the wind I hear your call
It stills my breath; I cannot breathe
When will I see your loving face?
Those tired eyes that never change
I’m left with only longing

Different paths; I cannot change
Through immortal time and space
Whisper sweetly in my ear
I long to know you are near
Not far behind me

I turn around, but you are gone
A distant memory; so long
I wish that I could hold your hand
Keep you close in this strange land
But it’s too late, my darling

But in the wind I hear that call
It stills my breath; I cannot breathe
You’ve changed my world; you changed heart
Lead me to this place apart
And with faith I keep walking
