The One I Love


A poem to the one I love


A poem of hope and fury


A sign of fire in the dark


It goes round and round


No one there to stop its turn


No one there to kill the light



The world is dark


But I got a light


That never goes out


Not now


Not now



It will never burn down


Only the distance makes me


Feel so lonely


But my thoughts go hundreds of miles


To search the one I love


To imagine her smile


To see her body


In the light of a full moon


Somewhere in the snow.




(© Mac McLaw - Autumn 1991)
