My angel has gone…

Alison L. JamesPoetry

No enlivening vibration
To cheer my soul
The breath of life
Appears withdrawn,
Yet I am breathing still.

My senses feel deprived
Of former bliss,
I feel alone
In a void universe,
Yet I know I am loved.

The spark has faded
Leaving stillness,
A time to reflect
Upon inner strengths,
Yet I love your presence.

Oh return, and stay
Forever with me!
My gatekeeper,
My whispering guide,
Yet you are always there!
