She is There, by Ethan Holmes

desert hedgehog1She Is There, a poem by Ethan Holmes.

She is there, for deep within my most quiet thoughts I have felt her touch.

In times when I am at my loneliest, my most solitary sadness, yes even despair,

She is there.

When nothing flows as it should, when the long stillness holds the air,

she is there.

Hope seeks to conquer disappointment and when I ask to hope, do I dare,

she is there.

When shoulders bowed and spirit low, I seek my deepest thoughts to lay bare,

she is always there.

I feel her, I sense her, I can all but reach to touch her, just that far away, just out of reach,

yet she is there.

I cannot do any more than that I have done, I call out no more, yet I know,

she is there.

Not hopeless, for hope springs eternal, I stand hopeful, hopeful that

she is there.

Where I wait, where I am, where I go, where I will be,

she is there.

Do I play the fool? Do I dream? Do I wish on the empty well?

Do I think on empty thoughts, driven by a vacant heart and only wish that she is there?

Hope springs eternal, my friend, fed only by the notion, defying all failure, that she is there.

 

A note from the author, Ethan Holmes;

A new-found friend asked me to write ‘something positive’. I would like to think there is something to be found that is positive in whatever I write. However, when I deliberately try to ‘be positive’ rather than the born realist that I am, I find that the romanticist in me pops out. Thus the poem. I hope you like it, especially those of you seeking to find a companion in these trying times we call ‘life’.
