Tuesday Poem: Hopeless Love

Post image for Tuesday Poem: Hopeless Love

How shall I hold you, gone from me soon?
I shall hold you to me as the cloud holds the moon.

How shall I touch you when I am alone?
As the sunlight the water, the shadow the stone.

How shall I reach you, wherever you are?
I shall fly to your arms like the wind from afar.

And how will you know me when I have no form?
– As the ocean the tempest, the forest the storm.
