Love is Eternal - It Will Always Be

Love That Has Been

When love has been there

and then it has gone away,

you just sit and stare.

Where could the love be?

You lived in it for so long.

Never asking to be free.

It gave you its light.

Your world revolved around it

Morning, noon, and night.

Come back your heart cries

I never told you to go!

Never said my good-byes.

By Jamie Street on Unsplash

One day I looked up

and your love had gone away.

Broken like a cup.

Was it really gone?

Or was it still in my heart

Waiting for the dawn?

By Simon Wilkes on Unsplash

You brought the sunrise

I found love's sweet light again

Shining in your eyes.

A new day has come

and love's bright light shines again.

To show me the way back home.
