Pearl 22 – Because of You

Life lived in isolation
Must be a dreary,
Soul-bleaching existence
Where every day is misty grey.
No-one to go to bed with
Or to talk with at night
When sleep evades
And memory-grenades
Flash-light the room
Eliminating all possibility of sleep.

Love is the sunshine
Needed to disperse
The sleeplessness-curse,
That strikes from time to time.
Love shows in small acts:
A stroke of the face,
A warm embrace
To emphasise anew
That you are not one but two.
Love dispels the mist,
Revealing the new day
In all its joyous beauty,
Ready to be faced –
Because of you.
