Lorelei Lea

My heart has been ripped out,

With only remnants left behind.

I hold on to life,

Holding on to what’s kind.


I pray for the pain to end,

Waiting for my sweet memories

To begin, closing my eyes,

I find her inside, the love

Of my ‘Sweet Pea’ will

Never End.


The sunshine I feel is

The warmth of her hug,

Secure in my arms,

My little ‘Boo Bug’.


The gentle breeze I feel is

The soft touch of her hand,

Caressing my arms,

Without a demand.


The birds sing and it’s

her laughter I hear,

Closing my eyes

I know she is near.


The starlight above is

The twinkle in her eyes,

Looking down at me,

Saying goodnight.
