“A Journey”

by Tom McLeod
I always wanted more from life,
Playing it like a Fife,
This (naturally) just led me into strife !
My path became clear upon meeting you,
One rare, frightening,
And heart string tightening.
I searched unsuccessfully,
Discovering, quite accidentally,
My only need was you.
I bathed in your presence, a selfish crime,
One of which I became guilty off,
Much too much of the time.
When we were apart,
Even if just for a while,
My heart became sullen, and easily riled.
But, for your comfort,
I did what you think to be best,
I kept my distance, and gave you some rest.
Still, your spirit filled my soul,
Keeping my Heart under control,
Until our next moonlight patrol.
Besotted, I failed to consider you.
For you belong to no one,
Least of all “I.”
It became apparent,
All I felt were “I’s”,
Even the path I chose as “Ours”.
Now as I walk this path alone,
I thank you for giving me direction,
And cause for reflection.
Love is no longer a desire,
Love is not for me, but “Us”,
This I now acknowledge, thanks to you !
