Love Poem: Everything
Tony Bush Avatar
Written by: Tony Bush


I cannot stem the tears from flowing, 
Nor sweep the dust that wreaths my prayers, 
Nor fray the hemp that ties my knowing 
Of your leaving.

I cannot switch back to the splendour, 
Nor face the days bereft of you, 
Nor grasp the thorn that must engender 
My silent grieving.

I cannot know if ties will sever, 
Nor speak the words to soothe my plight, 
Nor hold you in my arms forever 
Against this sting.

I cannot bear as time crawls nearer, 
Nor phrase it in more crystal speech, 
Nor paint the picture any clearer, 
You are everything.
