A poem from the heart of Lilith, to the archangel Uriel, her destined mate and true love, during her travail in his absence.
I see you smiling, your arms reaching for me
I run at last to hold you, my soul soaring free
I throw my arms around you to hold you to me tight
your image breaks and vanishes, mist floating into the night.
To my knees I fall and to the skies I scream
twas not my love but only a dream
grief consumes me, my tears flow hot
sorrow besets my every thought.
My heart bleeds within me, weary and frail
my body longs for yours to no avail
my soul downcast and broken, no longer discerning
can no longer sense through the wrath of this burning.
As in death I mourn the bliss of your touch
the memories of our passion now hurts far too much
haunted by your face you’re all my heart can see
in misery I wonder why heaven has forsaken me.
Oh come quickly my love, and save me once more
my strength and my sanity only you can restore
to the gods I humbly beg, send up my tearful plea
I’d gladly give my soul to have you back with me.
For my love to return I wait day and night
with the last of my strength this darkness I fight
I’ll hold on to the hope till the moment of death
and whisper your name with my last dying breath.
