|"Always Waiting" [E] by destinydances
Your words were like a peaceful lullaby
That resonated soft within my heart
A hush of moment's sweetest, loving sigh
That we two souls together could impart.
So mingled with the sunlight and the mist,
A gentle union rhythmic in its sway,
I felt my spirit's hand receive your kiss
And left you there to get on with our day.
I promptly forgot ev'rything you said,
Though somehow knew those words would be your last.
For years I've held your picture in your stead,
With mem'ries always waiting from the past.
Now I don't face my waning years with dread,
But comfort from the sense of what you said.
"Invalid Item" by Obleo
Words spoken from my heart still linger true;
Because of you my spirit cannot die
My love, they held my parting gift to you.
Within your heart you’ll find ‘tis where I lie.
No more illumed by sun nor stars nor moon,
‘Tis love’s pure light that ever lights the day.
And love, know this, our day approaches soon.
Ne’r step you take, but guard I not the way!
Worry not then, few words that time forgot.
Release thy grip, hold fast to this instead;
For Spirit knows them, nary one be lost.
Ne’r more wanting for naught of what was said.
No less than comfort, for thy loving heart;
Together, we remain as from the start!
