LOVE AND FEAR, LOVE POEM

LOVE POEMS PART ONE – AFTER LOVE AND FEAR

AFTER LOVE AND FEAR,

THERE’S PRIDE

After love and fear, there’s pride;
After tears, the night;

After all the words are gone,
A chair with just one light.

After memories, the dream

That you will come home safe;

After sleep, another day

Of waiting for my life.

After hope, the happiness

Of thinking of your love;

After moments of despair

A stone no thought can move

After all the sacrifice,

The hunger and the pain,

The passions and the promises,

The losses and the gains,

There’s nothing but my love for you,

Which waits upon the wind

To bring you from the barricades

That now you must defend


LOVE AND FEAR

AFTER YOU LEAVE,

I WILL BECOME A TREE

 

After you leave, I will become a tree

Alone on a hillside, loving wind and sun,
Waiting for you to return home to me
Though centuries of lonely stars may run.

I’ll grow tall and give lots of shade,

Sheltering birds and other bright-eyed things.
Pleased with all the progress that I’ve made,
I’ll spread my leafy branches out like wings.

But oh! Every moment of every day

I’ll miss you with the passion of the wind,

Gazing endlessly upon the way

That without you must empty, empty wind.
