My soul sought you

through long years of emptiness and pain

sensing your absence...

knowing that somewhere

you were waiting


My captive heart ached

seeking you

in sunlight and shadow

as I wandered the dim dusty corridors of time


Hungering, longing for the one soul

that made my heart sing

Happiness always just beyond the next turning in the road

As lifes dance

carried me along its byzantine ways


Til one day..

I found you my laddie

and knew

that I had found home.


I have loved you all my days...

You laddie..

Who have taken captive

this yearning heart.



Each heartbeat an affirmation

of the bond that unites us in love.


I will love you all my days

through anger and pain...

through lifes myriad treacheries,

will my soul reside within you


And at days end...

when deaths soft shadow comes a calling, my laddie,

my soul will fly free


to your loving arms
