|Too Early a Goodbye
By Charmed on 04/10/2011
In turns of time and of the mind, shadows fear the light.
For the Day is always shortest after the longest night.
The brink of dawn begins to bloom and the fight is being won.
The dark diminishes, retreats and falls, and rebirth is being done.
Creeping rays penetrate my darkest fears, and wrap around the frost.
That smothered my heart and froze my soul when the mirage I had was lost.
Wandering far and screaming aloud to a world of cold hard stone.
Chance leads me to your fragile heart and I find my own not alone.
Pain and loss, broken hearts, we know all three so well.
Felt so deep, unknown or known, lost in a subconscious spell.
Of protective walls and cosy space to stay away from loss.
But your eyes they sparkled, they spoke to me, your hands they reached across.
The space between your pain and mine, revealing a hidden truth.
That if we walk slow but hand in hand the path would turn out smooth.
No rush to need, no rush to love, just happiness here and now.
Until the road is no longer smooth and progress it won’t allow.
But now we laugh, you warm my soul, the frost begins to melt.
I start to feel, to find myself, I’m lucky with this hand I’m dealt.
Our time together I’ve seen in you a deeply rooted smile.
I hope to make that smile grow so keep me close a longer while.
I ask not for forever, or for a promise of what might be to come.
Just for the moment, we’re happy now, don’t let that joy become undone.
Who knows what caution with which we tread, in light of what has been.
So lets not be rash, not lose the bond the rays of light let be seen.
Not enough time we’ve had to know what course this road will take.
I only know to end it now will be a huge mistake.
Life is vast and we are young, time is on our side.
So lets take more and give our walls their own time to subside.
In short you are the suns warm rays whose vibrancy have found.
A girl in me who wants to fight, I’m enlivened by your sound.
I’m asking you with all have, don’t be rash, don’t walk away.
To give more time, some months I hope, please tell me that you’ll stay.
For a season that will show us both whether it’s really right to walk away.
