After the Dark


IMG_1019
You are the sunshine - after the dark
The dark that had stayed so long in my mind -
Savaged by relentless lies and gilded fakery

Everywhere I look - your image remains in my minds eye
I feel, I breath, I exist - able to cope
Hand me your love and I will hand you the world - but first I will wash it in soap 

With you I feel so alive, my time on earth is well spent 
I'm in control, taking the wheel for the long drive ahead 

You reward my love - with precious heart 
Something of which I was starved
You are my candle and I hold the match 
And once lit 
We are to each other bound

Your light may burn down - but your soul flame lays low waiting for my gaze
I thought our chance had gone, lost 
Your light came to me again with your youthful grin and disarming chat

If all our days are spent, in the rich garden of love 
Then in my old age the regrets will be few 
And I will be glad that I met my beautiful you
