Without you (rondeau)

by Michael   May 8, 2018


each night that comes I wait in vain
for you to come back once again
wind-chimes jingle and play a tune
a sign you’re here within the room
..madness can be a lonely game

I hear your voice to soothe my pain
caressing thoughts that keeps me sane
..i yearn for you to come back soon
each night that comes...

i close my eyes and hear your name
to help me through what feels insane
without you here feels dull and gloom
i hope again the wind will bloom
without you here my life feels lame
each night that comes..

    Now this is just so beautifully written with the right words and
    the form itself blends into the write...if that made sense maybe
    I should have said the write blends in so much with the form!

    Well done!
