I Am With You Always
by Sonia S. Sicat
Jack & Me
(My Husband's Response to the Four Poems I have
dedicated to Him)
I watch the tears streaming down your face
As you struggle hard to write words..
Into a beautiful verse
I read each word that echoes with pain
Etched upon the page by my beloved's hand.
As you write those lines for me in a poem
Know that I am always by your side
I am right behind you, my lips almost
Brushing your face.. As over your shoulder
I look down upon the page
Can you feel me, my love? I'm just a breath away.
You say you love me and miss me so much
I kiss those tears upon my hands
My soul tearing me apart,
Know that this is not even half as much..
As I miss you, my love
I too, am left with a broken heart.
How i wish I could freeze..
The sorrow and the pain
Your moments, hours, nights and days,
Spent in longing, searching, reaching
For me in vain
Oh God! What I would give.
To be with you today..
To put my arms around you
And wipe your tears away,
To whisper, "there, there, my sweet,
Hush now, I'm here"
And forever with you to stay..
(my love, my heart is aching, pray)
It's hard to make you believe..
But there is really no distance between us
The heavens and the earth are all God's domain,
He created souls to find each other
Defying time and space,
Bound by an undying love for each other..
That the two of us share
By God's infinite mercy and grace.
And I am with you always, my love
Feel me, embrace me, sense me
The way you used to when I was alive,
I am in the morning sunbeam
That touches your face
I am in the gentle breeze
That ruffles your hair
I am in the sweet lyrics of..
Our love songs you sing
I am in the lines of this poem..
That to you, I bring.
For my dear wife Sonia,
From your beloved husband..Jack
