My Other Half

by Marivel Guzman

Where were you, Love?
I knew you’d come!
I heard your little soft steps,
I felt your fairy wings
dancing to the tune of my breathless hope
I sensed you getting ready for the dance of love

On the sparkles of the rain,
I saw your mist curling in.
I know It was you, who touched my shoulder
When I felt all broken down.
I knew you’d come, It is you,
who saved me from the darkest dream.

Where were you, Love?
I smell the aroma of your shadow
Breathing always next to me.
I knew you’d be,
courting my silhouette
inhaling every drop of my sleep.

Where were you, Love?
I needed your warm presence next to me,
I wanted to hear the whispers of your voice.
I missed your presence in my life.
I tried to forge in another hope,
I tried to call in other names,
but love is not a costume dress, that I can change.

Where were you, Love?
I needed you to come tonight.
The piercing shout of my pain
will keep me awake if you don’t come,
your absence cut right through my soul.

Where are you Love?
I need to embrace your name again,
I want to snuggle up again,
against your heart next to mine.

I knew you come,
I know you missed my voice touching your ear.
I know your life is half without my touch,
I knew you’d come,
I’m feeling warm again tonight. ♥

Love is not love,
if it does not have its other half.
