Princess Facing Death and Life
Time stopped at your tears
Cast down, you found the dawn.
You gazed silently into his fears
Heartbeats counted by boulders brawn.
You reigned softly raindrops kissing your eyes
Sprites and butterflies solaced the loss
Magic to you were wooden, tongue of lies.
You cried to the skies in Scotland’s moss.
Your hands groping through faith and hope
Trusting the invisible, the invincible
Clinging to mountain wisdom’s lost rope.
One ally, sole friend, you are indivisible.
Your robe trails on tops of clouds at night
Ravens bow, serpents heads hang down
Holding your sparkle of life so right.
Weeping to rose petal on unforgiving ground.
You sit, you think, but he is nowhere near
His touch, his words, and laughter soft
His kiss, his touch, his faith crowing your fear.
In another year, you shall hear, a small cry . . .
In another year, you and he live, laughter nigh.
Writer's summary – love is easy to the young ones at time;
their sole enemy stalking their heart filled with blind love.
