After the Storm Has Passed

Gone is your presence,

But forgotten not

Is its place in my heart.


Away from me you flew,

Carried away by the storm

As its troubled winds

Whispered its lies

With its cool and moist breath


Promises of joy and ecstasy

As you spun wildly

In its blissful chaos,

Un-mindedly subverted

By its illusion of power and beauty.


But eternal is my love

And forever shall I wait for your return

From the swirling torment

That has stolen you away.


Resolved is my heart

And hopeful is my demeanor

That you will soon be reborn

Into my calm sky,


As my patient arms

Await your intimate embrace.
