Our Song

Our song fills the air.

It breathes, brings to life
memories that once seemed
forgotten, heaven still remains

even though you are gone
I stretch into the place we
once lived, the place where we
once loved. I am free

to remember the feel of your
lips on mine, the feel of your
hands within mine, the gleam
in your eyes when you looked at me

I never knew love like ours.

Before long, I am singing our
song and it’s like you never left
that you’ve been here all along
in my heart, in my arms
where you belong

But then the song is over and I’m
faced with the silence that’s
been left behind, the void
in my life where we once shared love.

I keep re-playing our song.

I have no choice but to
open my eyes finally and see
love isn’t a guarantee ‘cuz you’re
no longer here with me
and our love, your smile are memories
that I just can’t let go
because one day the song will
play again and I’ll remember
that love never really ends

Sometimes it’s just waiting
in the wings for our song to
begin and for us to remember
what it means to be in love.

Peace & Love,


About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard.
