Upon a Mountain High

31 May

Upon a mountain high

A candle glows

It flickers and wavers

In a hand of love

With tears in eyes

I cherish your love

Within my heart

Yes my darling

You have my love

You have my heart

You are in my soul

In times now lost

Yet chronicled

In the books of love

And veiled

Behind the memories

Of my aging mind

I loved you then

As I love you now

You don’t know me

Yet you feel me

I speak within words

I speak from my soul

I hear you

I touch you

I am in your dreams

For I am that

For which makes us complete

I am love

The love within your eyes

The love within your heart

I see the beauty

Through your eyes

Do I love you?

Yes my darling

I do love you

I loved you then

And I love you now

Within my dreams

Of my lonely nights

You are still the girl

Who has never changed

The golden smile

The laughing eyes

The bubbling laughter

Now eons pass

And times do change

Yet you my darling

Have never changed

You are the Angel

From my past

Within my memories

Of an aging mind

Beneath the pale

Blue moons

I hold the girl

Within me

For I am neither you

Nor you are neither me

For we are one

You are the Angel

That brings tears

To my eyes

And makes me cry

For I am the love

Within you

I love you my darling

Yes my darling

I do

For I love the true feeling

Of Love

And you are

Pure love

        Hi Ian, Yes, the blessing of summer has arrived here. It flies so quickly! I read this wonderful poem again and listened to the exquisite music. I love your “For I am neither you, nor you are neither me, for we are one.”
