~ An Hour With You~


I slowly walk along the garden path,
With caring thoughts of you in my mind,
Together we walked this same pathway,
Hands clasp with fingers entwined.

I feel your presence near me,
It is as though you walk by my side,
I look to see if you are really there,
'Tis nothing and my heart cried.

The stillness in the garden,
Belies the feelings of my heart,
Memories that were welcomed,
Now seek to rend me apart.

I stop and regain my composure,
Thankful that no one could see,
I reached to touch you once more,
As reality came flooding back o'er me.

I continue along where we walked before,
Just me and mind shadows of you,
I would love to hold you once more,
Expressing a love needful and true.

Stillness in the garden haunts my soul,
Creating pain with fleeting memories,
I leave the trails once walked in love,
Yet the thoughts know no boundaries.
