The Seventh Sense Is LOVE
A single tear falls from my eye, then, others follow closely by,
Skin craves a touch from your dear paw, my heart so broken and so raw,
Eyes scan for your familiar form, from old resting spots, they can’t be torn
Nose poised for your familiar scent, head in sorrow now, so deeply bent
Ears wish to hear familiar sound, heart aches with each successive pound,
Eating has now lost all its favour, to swallow hard and not to savour,
How hard it is to feel again, wrenching my chest with waves of pain
Then, my sixth sense knows you are near, still in my thoughts my sweetest dear,
I close my eyes and see your face, fall into your eyes - that magic place,
I feel my love again to flow, feel your love returned, that special glow,
Happy memories flood my mind, wash the pain and gently replace, in kind.
Time is all that holds me from your embrace, but to be here now, is my right place
I have so much to do till we – joyously, side by side, forever be!
You taught me well dear friend and tutor, to love with full voice – allow no mute here!
Love unconditional, is now my fate, to my heart here on earth I will now reopen my gate,
My sweet, kind, clever and generous friend, you truly taught me that ‘love really has no end’,
To give ones heart, with no conditions, is to beat life’s cancer ‘loneliness’ beyond remission
This was your gift, this sense you gave me, no ‘ifs’ or ‘buts’, no room for a ‘maybe’!
You are here with me now I know, so to guide my heart to another to care for now!
This Seventh sense becomes my way, to get through each “without you” day,
