A Love Like That

You left on raven wings of night
Not lingering to bid farewell
To those of us you left behind

Shattering the foundation of our lives
Ripping out our souls
Leaving blackened vacant holes
Where eyes of love once glowed

Cold stones where hearts in rhythm beat
You were too good, we were too young
We'd only wounds that would not heal
And keloid hearts that could not feel

We were too young, you were too kind
We knew that we would never find
A love like that

A tender love so pure, so real
That only true love could impart
That love that conquered all our fears
The love that flowed from Daddy's heart

This Poems Story

I was born in Canada and raised in the U.S. Virgin Islands. I currently reside in Kentucky. I developed a love for the flow, rhyme of words, and language under the tutelage of my mother when I first read the words from The Song of Hiawatha. "Ye whose hearts are pure and simple who have faith in God and nature who belive that in all ages every human heart is human that in even savage bosoms, there are longings yearnings striving for the good they comprehend not listen to these tales of pathes. . ." I was captivated by the words of Pathos, what a marvelous word.
