A sacrifice of dreams

Held captive by mystery

In a prison of uncertain love

Redeemed with a kiss.


Adrift in an ocean of expectant eyes

Rages a sigh of hope

Awaiting crumbs of praise

Times torrent of indifference.


Marble hearts

Cold hands

Warm words

To welcome strangers.


She cherished scarlet ribbons

Filling the lonely vacuum

Love born in emptiness

Grace in the shadows.


Silver refined in loves furnace

Heart’s blossoming flower

Tears caress caring cheeks

Touching the dew of heaven.


Silently she fulfils her dreams

In the valley of separation

Lost within a realm of care

Love poured from hopes chalice.
