Two Midsummer Poems

sunset

Thrush Place Nocturne

Oceans of time, a starlit night,
Deep calls unto deep.
A train in the distance, hidden from sight,
Soon I’ll surrender to sleep.

Mournful and low, the whistle sighs,
Piercing my heart with its calm.
Deep in the night, my soul will rise,
Singing a psalm.

Seven years on, now what is the sound
Of moonlight on the bay?
I gaze at the stars in the hours before dawn,
And wait for the breaking of day.

Mournful and low, the highway moans,
Piercing my heart with its calm.
Deep in the night, my soul will rise,
Singing a psalm.

Well, I’m lost in a dream
On this midsummer night
By the light of a wandering star.
It matters not who we are.

Oceans of time, a starlit night,
Deep calls unto deep.
A train in the distance, hidden from sight,
Soon I’ll surrender to sleep.

Draw Close to Me

Dear child of mine, I love you so,
Far more indeed than you can know.
I know your pain and I’ve felt your fear.
Draw close to me, for I am here.

A heavy load is the grief you bear,
And oh, so deep, your dark despair.
Yet not as deep as my love for you,
Draw close to me; I’ll see you through.

Long after I’ve grown old and gray,
I’ll love you as I do today.
I wish you joy and a world of peace,
Where troubles fade and sorrows cease.

Oh child of mine, I love you so,
Far more indeed than you can know.
I know your pain and I’ve felt your fear.
Draw close to me, for I am here.
Draw close to me, for I am here.

Best regards,
