Poetic moments

JUST ONCE

Look at me with your pleading eyes

Look at me with you bleeding heart

Look at me with your needing soul

Look at me as if you know it all

And lie to me that you feel my pain

And lie to me that you fathom my distress

And lie to me that you see my suffering

And let me think that you are my best friend

Listen to me as I blubber endlessly

Listen to me as I cry my eyes dry

Listen to me as I break from within

Listen to me as if your mind is here

And let me think that you hear my chatter

And let me think that you see the rivulet of agony

And let me think that you see through to my heart

And let me feel cared for if only for a moment

Speak to me in tenderest whispers

Speak to me with the softest words

Speak to me in your clearest voice

Speak as if the words are from your heart

And let me hear the whispers of love

And let me hear the coherent words

And lull my mind with that voice

And let me discern the voice of love in that converse

Hold me with your feeble hands

Hold me close in a tight bond

Hold my hands as I narrate my agony

Hold me as if you will never let me go

And let me feel your arms around me

And let me stain your shoulder with my tears

And let me feel the surge of love flow from you to me

And let me feel lost in the comfort of your embrace

If only for a day let me see a ray of hope in your eyes

If only for a day let me have an ear to tell of my fears

If only for a day let me hear the sounds of love around me

If only for a day let me have a shoulder to lean on

And afterwards…

Look in your own way

Listen to your own music

Speak in your own tongue

Hold that which you crave for

But …

Leave me with a smile on my face

And a phase of a new life.
