A whimper came to me at night, A murmur soft as a dream. It crept into my consciousness, As would a silk moonbeam.
This phantom sound, This covert cry, Caused my heart to still; It seemed to me It had to be More than just a sigh.
A threat, A promise, A pleading voice, A start or a cessation? A signal meant for me alone – Oblation or Damnation?
I held my heart in readiness, Wept when no guidance came; Waited too long, The moment gone; As ever I am to blame.
Please Note:Over the next few weeks, whilst I am downsizing and moving house, I shall hopefully be posting only two blogs each week, rather than my usual daily publication. I hope to return to more frequent postings in a few weeks time.
