Devoid of Hope

My light, my love,

Look my way.

My shining sun,

My flitting dove.

.

With your eyes so bright

And clear as crystal,

They're dark as night,

Patient and pure.

.

Your chin is set,

Your mouth upturned.

Sure and steady,

There you go.

.

Your brow is firm,

Raised just so.

Thin and strong,

A leader they show.

.

Your laughter spreads

From deep within.

It's soft, warm glow,

Chasing away all dreads.

.

Your gentle touch,

Soothing and cool.

It struck me odd,

I'll never forget.

.

Your selfless nature,

Your overpowering care,

Your radiant beauty,

Let anyone surpass, I dare…

.

And when you crumble,

The world could end.

When your stride, it falters…

My soul, it aches.

.

Your tears pound

Into the depths of my heart.

Your wordless scream

Pierces my strength.

.

As your breath catches,

Mine is blown away.

You reach for the wall.

My head is spinning.

.

I'll carry you if I have to;

I will if I won't.

I swear, I'll never give up.

You're coming with me!

.

We'll trudge through together.

When we look back in the end,

We'll embrace and we'll cry,

Then you'll smile again…

.

Hand in hand we'll stride,

Leaving all grief behind.

I'll sacrifice anything…

I'll be by your side.
