Still Alive Poem


Poetry Archive/ Home/ Poetry Links


by Marilyn McIntyre

are poems alive
upon the page
do words have meaning
does the music sing
when no one hears
am i alive when i'm alone
does my breath soar
and reach another's dreams
will God hear me
can i feel with no other
to give me bounds
and where do my feelings fly
in the night
mysterious and dark and calling
if my eyes cannot see
is it so
and the candle
what of the candle
will it still glow
without tender whispered murmurs
where will my love touch down
must it float forever
meandering among the stars
where does it all go
where does it go
when it's gone?
