My Guiding Light

From While I Breath, I Hope. by David E. Bauguess


My Guiding Light

When we're apart
I'm ever so restless and alone
Knowing you're there on your own
Leaves me feeling sad within my heart

The scent of you lingers in my mind, pleasant
Ghosts of yesterday's demise
Keeps the moments of our time together alive
Within—reminds me of the sparkle of your eyes

I long to hear your tender voice, and to feel
The excitement that comes with you calling my name
If you dared whisper into my ear of your love for
Me—if it in fact matched mine's for you
Then my life would never be the same

If I quiet all the madness within, I can still
Feel your tantalizing caresses from yesterday
Quite paralyzing—How I long to be in your embrace
To see that hypnotizing smile from your face

Because of you I am able to rise each day anew
Eager and able to take on each day without delay
Each challenge, each trial winnable because of you
Your beauty, your character such a refreshing
You, my beloved, have become my guiding light

Hi David,
This is my first time on this website — I’m not even sure if I’m doing this right. Anyway, I thought I would let you know that your writing is beautiful. I enjoyed reading each poem you have written. Hope this gets to you.
Best regards,

Ps - I’m a big handwriting person, and I must say, yours is flawless!
