Our Secret Place
  Our Secret Place Written 2011 Four years ago we kissed your lips and whispered our goodbyes Four years since the light was taken from those big brown eyes Surrounded now by photographs that greet me every day To bring to life the moments spent together lost in play   Time propels us forward – so little place for grief Tears are frozen, cries are silent!  Stolen by a thief! So I found a Secret Place -  a place for you and me A reservoir of memories where feelings can run free    When life feels overwhelming and I need to hide awhile Our Secret Place awaits me,  and gives me cause to smile Awakening remembrances of precious times we shared A haven that protects me when I’m feeling sad or scared   Sometimes when I’m lost in thought, your smiling face appears Inviting me to join you in this Place that knows no tears Where your laughter echoes silently and still I hear your voice And feel the hugs that gave me every reason to rejoice   Our Secret Place consoles me and bestows some peace of mind It’s a place where time stands still -  and where pain is left behind Where reflections from the past, feel palpable and real A kaleidoscope of images that soothe and help me heal   And Tali – when I feel your presence in Our Secret Place The ache residing in my soul is softened by your grace And when I leave this harbour, to face the world once more I take with me the quiet inside that eluded me before   Though your time on earth was short you left a legacy of song A tapestry of joy that that’s ever colourful and strong No matter how the years go by or how long we’re apart Time ...
