Your Song of Home

Call me through whispers,

Through prayers all unspoken

Plead through the course of tears

Of a heart- - beating broken.

 

Call me through practised smile,

Hiding your sorrow,

That shadow of yesterday,

That looms o’er tomorrow.

 

Wait in your silent room,

Wait with your friends,

Fate that once robbed from you,

Shall soon make amends.

 

Call me through whispers,

Venture your voice,

Pray for your favorite tune,

Crooned at your choice.

 

For it is then I shall sing you,

And it is there I shall bring you,

Like a bird it shall wing you,

Away, love, away.

 

Away, far over dark waters,

Where storms wave-drive the deep,

Away to bright mountain tops,

Their vistas to keep.

 

Away from the vagabonds,

That eternally roam,

Conveyed to that secret place

That your heart calls home.

 

Then, call me through whispers,

And ache till you sigh,

For soon I shall sing for you,

Your song, ere I die.

I love this call to the love of one's life, which is so endearing and pure in earnest! So well said and put together to be memorable enough to be journeyed again. Excellent!

Awe, SavVy, you've almost captured my heart. You know how I think smart = sexy, and now you go and get sentimental! Can I e-mail you some yellow roses? HT

Something almost hypnotic about the flow of this, it's dreamy and compelling at the same time. Beautiful imagery... it brought tears to my eyes.

A gentleman always provides a clean hanky, even by email. Thanks for reading.
