"A SPIRITS WORDS" (A poem I wrote about a friends love for his wife)

LOOKING OUT OF MY WINDOW
ON A COLD AND LONELY NIGHT,
I CAN SEE THE SHADOWS DANCING FROM BUILDING TO BUILDING AS THEY PASS BY THE LIGHTS.

I SIT ALONE AND THINKING OF YOU,
AND THE WONDERFUL DAYS WHEN WE COUNTED AS TWO.

YOUR ON MY MIND AND A GENTLE BREEZE CARESSES MY FACE,
AND THE SMELL OF YOUR PERFUME IS THERE IN ITS PLACE.

I CAN TELL IT WAS YOU, I KNEW IT WAS YOUR TOUCH,
MY HOW I MISS YOU, CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY IT HURTS SO MUCH.

LISTEN CLOSELY THIS MAY HAPPEN TO YOU,
I REMEMBER WE ALWAYS HAD SOMEWHERE TO GO AND SOMETHING TO DO.

HAND IN HAND WE WALKED THOSE COBBLE STONE STREETS,
OUR FOOTSTEPS MOVING AND SKIPPING TO THE BEAT.

THE BEAT WAS FAMILIAR I’M SURE THAT YOU KNEW,
IT WAS THE BEATING OF OUR HEARTS THAT THUMPED,
ONE ONE TWO,
ONE ONE TWO.

WE MOVED LIKE THOSE SHADOWS SO LIGHT ON OUR FEET,
WE FLOATED ON AIR, DOWN EVERY STREET,

IT WAS LIKE HEAVEN ON EARTH, ON THIS TINY BLESSED SPHERE, THIS SOFTLY SPINNING GEM,
THEY SAY LOVE CAN LAUNCH A MILLION SHIPS, BUT NOT TWO MILLION SHIPS COULD EVER CARRY
MY LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU,

YES I REMEMBER THOSE DAYS, I REMEMBER IT WELL,
AND NOW I SIT HERE ALONE, LOOKING OUT OF MY WINDOW, WONDERING WHY IT ALL WENT TO HELL.

IT HAPPENED SO SUDDEN, SO QUICK AND SO FAST,
I HAD NO IDEA, THAT IT WOULD NOT LAST.

YOU SEE THE DOCTOR SAID, IT WAS UNFORSEEN,
A CURE WAS NOT IN OUR GRASPS OR EVEN A MEANS.

THERE WAS LITTLE TIME FOR HER AND FOR ME,
AND THE TEARS I HAD SHED. I MADE SURE SHE DIDN’T SEE.

SO TOGETHER WE DID ENJOY THE TIME THAT WAS LEFT,
AND THE DAY FINALLY CAME, THE DAY I HAD DREAD.

SO HERE I SIT, THINKING OF YOU AND THE LOVE THAT WE SHARE.
AND PEOPLE WHO SAID WE MADE QUITE A PAIR,

BUT NOW IT’S TIME FOR ME, YOU KNOW,
YOU KNOW ITS THAT TIME, ITS TIME TO LET YOU GO,

FOR YOU SEE, I LEFT HER WITH THE LIVING AND I LEFT HER WITH MY LOVE,
IT’S ME THAT WAS GOING TO HEAVEN WITH THE CREATOR ABOVE,

NO, NO TEARS OF SORROW DO I SHED, THESE TEARS YOU SEE ARE TEARS OF JOY,

THE JOY OF LOVING HER AND KNOWING SHE LOVED ME SO.

It rarely happens but you managed to leave me at a loss for words. "BEAUTIFUL" is not enough to describe it, and "THANK YOU" is not enough for sharing this!!! You, my brother, ROCK!!!!!!!!
