 To be lost in faraway deep

I lay before I sleep

Warmth that my spirit seek

I pray that you guide and keep

Reminisced the piercing day

I implored you to just stay

Made a promise all will be okay

Will make the return someday

How foolish and naive to believe!

Now I am bereaved

Cold, lifeless, alone to grieve

Bittersweet memories you leave

Like a flower painfully withering

A heartless winter never ending

Candle's flame slowly dying

Seasons of drought and famine

But through the mist and haze

A light beckons, caught me in daze

Softly, tenderly, nothing can faze

Filled with love, I am raised

Brought my flower back to life

End my infinite winter strife

A new heat to my dying flame

Season of rapture because You came.

I found a gem in this uplifting poem that moves from feelings of loss and sorrow to a realization of hope in the  Spirit of love.  nicely penned.  ~)K

The full cycle of loss and regaining what you love. I like the positive ending. Quite charming, in fact.
