Lost in obscurity, you are deserted
on a lonely stretch of highway,
miles out of reach in this midnight hour.
From the deep blue ocean,
the land slowly disappeared from sight.
They pushed me out, downstairs.
As they revived you,
I stood in disbelief, at the nurse's station,
holding dearly to our two babies.
A smile as fast as a glance.
Laughter slips through my hands like sand.
Snapshots reverb over in my mind.
I could feel myself falling apart.
Every emotion draining into the silence, that surrounded me.
absorbed in the questions
I could not answer,
beckoning me to abandonment.
Hope and faith are tethered to my soul,
by just a thread.
I am clinging to promises of tomorrow.
The strength, our children must see
when they look into my eyes.
The hope of true Faith, that God demands.
I am here, in the second floor chapel,
with our children sleeping beside me;
calling a legion of Angels, in prayer,
to watch over you on this night.
My Faith will stand in this hurricane,
until I break through the veil in heaven,
and put this need before the Throne.
Until every tear in anguish
has tasted the salt of victory.
Until every shadow cowers back
becoming vaporized in sweet sunlight.
I am all we have become
fighting for this sacred covenant,
to bask in the tranquility our union.
Every kiss before I crept off
to work in the darkness,
every time I reached for you,
I felt your heart beating in mine.
I will hear you
in the glory of the sunrise,
when your eyes open
to meet mine again.
