Meant for you

by Jay Davenport

I guide you through the hurricane,
The lightning, thunder, pouring rain,
I shield you, keep you, take the pain,
The hurt that's meant for you.

Again, to your side I return,
With not to gain, no lesson learned,
No chance in time that you won't spurn
The one that's meant for you

you vanish, leave me, disappear,
your absence robs me of all cheer,
your silence leaves me standing here,
the place that's meant for you.

Unsure, uncertain, I must wait,
Until I'm called to Heaven's gate,
Unless, with open arms you take
the love that's meant for you.

And should you want to come to me,
I'll show you all that we could be,
Love, and life lived passionately
the joy that's meant for you.

So here I am; forget the past,
This life is fleeting, time so fast
That this could be the final chance
for all that's meant for you.

This lovely poem would make an excellent song, maybe a rock ballad!
