Come with me

Come with me,
I will take you to the edge of the earth,
Where down the precipice of being,
Everything infinitely swirls down
'Till oblivion come...

Drown with me,
In the deep blue sea of human dignity,
Where the soul meets heart,
and heart meets soul,
'Till eternity...

Shed with me a tear of sorrow
for those in custody
of anguish, suffering, and agony,
And I'll show you what it's like to sing
a mournful litany...

Be with me,
And hold me tight,
In my hour of need,
And I, your ivy, will cling to you,
on a cold gloomy night, and follow you
right up to the aisle of ceremony...

Share with me,
The joy of life,
That you have given to me,
And I'll take you into the
realm of fantasy...

Mr painter

i am impressed. these words gave me goosebumps;

Shed with me a tear of sorrow
for those in custody
of anguish, suffering, and agony,
And I'll show you what it's like to sing
a mournful litany...

anguish,suffering, agony, mournful litany

wow,that's beautiful

Your words tell of love for a particular other and for the worlds people .. so many struggling in despair and hurt and still loving and hoping .. Life is such a mystery so full of love and beauty and still so full of hurt and violence and abuse ... why?? is a questione ...

A beautiful poem that went straight to myheart ,,, thank you!
