A poem which speaks of love
Today is my daughter Megan‘s tenth wedding anniversary. She and Toby were married for just over four years. Megan died of an unknown form of cancer, known as Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP), in January 2010. In this poem, which she wrote many years ago, she speaks of love.
Where there is a crowd
There are familiar strangers
Acquaintances, smothered by their own ambiguity.
Anything they say can still wash over me.
The abyss, the sea and suddenly
A flight to plains of green.
For you are the light in the darkness of my lonely heart.
A ray from the moon, like a spotlight, picking me out from the crowd.
There is a picture and there is sunshine
And you and I are captured in the moment’s light.
A lunar solstice, to look once is to be forever.
And there I can say I love you
And always know you understand
Asking questions of a concept is not a part of the heartland
And for you, I am the overriding instinct.
I calm your fear and you will always love me.
For as long as love will overcome darkness
In your eyes I am love itself
And for me you are the only truth.
