Robin's Realm


Getting Over


Will it be? Will it be?

Will I ever get over these feelings?

That keep gripping me he asks


A life of love had come

and then so quickly it was gone


He asks were there signs I was ignoring?

Were there signs of hope?


He asks himself

so many questions

So many he seeks the answers for


If he loves again

Will he be guilty?


I don’t know what to say to him

Amongst all his uncertainty


Who am I to tell him

it is ok to love again freely?


We both know there will always be the love

but oh how frustrating at times it can be


I need him and he needs me


He does not understand why

To her grave I went


I went to search to see

if a voice I could hear

that would say he can love you guilt free


Tell oh tell,

Tell him from above


Let him sit and let him see

Speak to him from me

It is ok with me


For when I was there on earth with you

A life we did share

I was taken by surprise and came to the eternal land


I know your love for me will never die-

But look and see

You are still with yourself and our family


Go forth in life with our family

Enjoy those memories put in place


I  know there was much love

And with that love  I rest


The eternal peace I want to have

Is knowing you can be


The man I loved so much- the man

Who can give so much to all and self

If he lets himself be free.
