My Song

Gentle trade winds sing your song

Whispering to me where I belong

In the twilight shadows of the moon

Hidden promises hum their tune

Void of heart my lonely chest

A sadly empty space at best

Cemetery of broken dreams

Of leaden tears and muted screams

Eternal hope now buried deep

Still feel your presence in my sleep

Gentle trade winds sing my song

Whispering to you where you belong

      Thank you so much, Cat! I have been and am very busy and have to 'steal' time to get onto the site. Was looking for your writings, but could not find anything. Will look again!
