I Surrender


How is it you are gone from me
Alone with my need for you again
You did not say goodbye
You slipped away in the darkness of night
Leaving me here with my sadness
My broken and wasted heart
Alone with my feelings of solitude
And all hope gone from my world
I awoke this morning to emptiness
A space that your presence had filled
I thought that this time you would stay
That you would not be leaving so soon
My love for you was not demanding
It was given with kindness and care
I never asked for it to be returned
I just wanted you to be there
Your presence was a light on my horizon
A glimpse of how love could feel
Only you could bring such happiness
Now with you goes my whole world
I stumble, I fall, I am broken
Until the day you return
I surrender my hopes to the darkness
And return to my empty dreams ...

Hello Dear,

I hope you are doing well. Beautiful lines. I have been pretty occupied with my life. After deleting my blog, I thought of starting a new one, with all good things around me. But then thought, I dont want to write down the feelings, I just want to experience and live, thats it. Or I guess I have grown too occupied or lazy to sit and think.

I was thinking about you this morning. It was good to read something so beautiful after a long time.

Hope you remember me :)

Lots of love

Take care

Shweta

dianne said...

Shweta sweet girl of course I remember you, I often think about you, I was wondering how you were, I see you have closed 'Random Thoughts'.

It is good that you are living your life, you are young and have so much yet to experience. I hope you are happy and settled in your life.
Better than sitting here like me at the computer.

I spend a lot of my time caring for my son, so I don't have much of a social life, virtually none.

My life goes around in circles, my poems are my outlet for my inspiration and my feelings.
I am pleased that you like this prose, it was written for my beautiful friend and muse, he comes and goes from my life...it is always sad when he leaves.

Take care sweet girl and lots of love to you too.
Dianne

Amiga Dianne.Tus poéticos comentarios a mi fotografia me muestran la bondad y las inquietudes de tu personalidad.
Un fuerte abrazo

Evanir said...

Amizade, bem precioso
Que a vida pode nos dar
Tesouro muito valioso
Que ninguém consegue roubar.
A amizade verdadeira,
Não tem hora,não tem lugar.
Também não é passageira
Quando vem, é para ficar.
È assim mesmo uma grande amizade,
e eu tenho você como um tesouro na minha vida.
Uma semana rica de saúde farta de amor iluminada pela esperança
junte tudo isso e poderá sentir no seu coração .
Quanto Deus te abençoa a cada amanhecer.
Uma linda semana beijos no coração carinhosamente .
Evanir..

Leovi said...

Yes, the vacuum caused by the abandonment of love is painful.
Besos.

JUAN FUENTES said...

Amiga Dianne.La fotografia no és ninguna pintura,es la realidad.
En Andalucia al ser tierra de invaciones y conquistas, tenemos una gran cantidad de castillos,algunos muy bién conservados

Evanir caro amigo, obrigado por suas preciosas palavras. Sim, se alguém é um amigo de verdade, então eles vão ficar com você sempre e não tomar a sua amizade de distância. Infelizmente algumas pessoas não são verdadeiros amigos. Obrigado por sua amizade e suas palavras de amor e conforto, eles me fazem sentir mais valorizada.
Deus te abençoe muito e fazer todos os seus dias cheios de amor e luz.
Muito amor, Dianne.

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy , I write these poems from personal experience, they come from the heart, you could say they are a form of catharsis.
I have a great depth of feeling for loving someone but when you feel so deeply you can be hurt so much when they don't feel the same. You cannot stop loving someone just because they don't return that love...I wish I could.
So life goes on alone, one day at a time.
Take care lil sweet pea.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear Analia for your kind words, sometimes surrendering your hopes and feelings is the only way to survive the reality and the hurt.

Leovi said...

Yes, even while there is hope there is love. Kisses.

dianne said...

Thank you dear Leovi yes, but the love is not returned.
Besos
