Return, O Lover, Return

Oh, has part of my heart moved so far away
To decrease my peace in your fair bosom?
Ah! How my soul minds this kind of absence!
It is the essence of loneliness
Out from the madness of love!
Come back, Lover, and again hover over me,
Or shall I die as I lie awake for your sake?
You’re like a rose that knows when to bloom,
So blossom in me once again
So I’ll cease to strain in pain!
I cannot stand the distance in this existence,
And so I persist to insist upon your return!
Come back to me and let me see you again;
Come back and fill me with the love I lack!
Or has part of my heart moved too far away?
If so, then the day will end in restless dismay
And I’m afraid I will stray even further away!
Return, oh return to this heart that burns . . .
For you . . . for you!

  1. Just started to follow your blog – actually you. Your words of almost desperation from the distance from a loved one is too real for me. Your words move me. What a talent you have! Thank you. Will look forward to more. John

  2. The hardest of all love, a love that you cannot hate even if you tried to.
    It is hard, and I like just how I can sense it in your words!

    This just says it all !!
