Sacred In Your Heart
There is a sacred place
                     In my soul
I love you
You gave me your all
                     Your love unconditionally
Lately I saw
In your eyes the sadness
                     Sorrow I felt
You waited
Eternally for the doors to open
                     Noises familiar to you
Me to appear be with you again
You soulfully
Greeted not in your usual
                     Happy way
Loud nasal joyful voice
I felt sadden
Still not fully
Your sorrow your pain
I let you out
Fresh air you need
                  I thought invigorating
Put a smile on your face
Even nudged you
Not knowing the pain
                  Your eyes are showing
Not at the moment you softly said no
Deeply in pain
Now I know
                  You sought comfort
The love you know always there from me
Yes you have
Without reservation like yours
                   This place in my soul
Sacred as you hold a place immortalized
In your heart for me

You can tell I am musing, lonely, needing another full moon.
In a way I am glad it resulted with this poem gazing a moonless
starlit sky.

What a romantic you are. The ladies will be lucky when they get REAL close to you.

That would be the day! For now, just looking to being around another day. Nice thought though. Grrr...I want those ladies to get REAL! Closer the better! :-)). Great to be with you Robert in this circle. You still have it, the sense of humor we all need! Thanks for liking.

Poetry that expresses all human emotion. Expressing, then releasing and letting go. That's part of life. Poetry is a wonderful art form! Very nicely written!

Thanks for liking, Brod. Soul poems come out now and then, often when you're feeling low as you very well know. And happy you are once you'd expressed your feelings.
