A FACE FROM THE LONG AGO

THE FACE IN THE CROWD

Michael Walsh Poetry: http://goo.gl/RPjs3f

 

The sun went down and the night came grey,

As I pulled the blinds on another day.

The chill was mine when I thought no more,

Of the face in the crowd I was looking for.

 

Twas a face I had seen from before you know;

A wraith-like form I once worshipped so.

A long-lost dream that I sought in vain;

A past life lived I now wished again.

 

A life for which I would give my soul;

In the church of my heart how that old bell tolled.

A love-life lost from the long ago,

When the Reaper called and she had to go.

 

For her face in the crowd I would search in vain,

Her face from the past to be seen again.

When my eyes and heart and my soul were one;

In their quest for a love that had been and gone.

 

It was a face that I knew but was lost to me;

On my soul engraved for my heart to see.

For my eyes to seek and my heart to yearn,

For my hopes to soar as I reached each turn.

 

When my eyes met yours in the crowd that night;

My soul danced free and my heart was light.

You had crossed the bridge from the long ago,

And your soul touched mine for I love you so.
