A Melody Searches (poem)

A melody searches lost moments passed

Through our golden springs each Joyous refrain

How could forever have left us so fast


As sunset surrenders the kisses we cast

Floating in heaven true feelings maintain

A melody searches lost moments passed


We danced with dreamers through visions so vast

Each whisper answered with not to explain

How could forever have left us so fast


Caresses contain our richness amassed

Yet there in the silence hearts hear its strain

A melody searches lost moments passed


Deep in its blindness our truth it harassed

Though all which we were this feeling of pain

How could forever have left us so fast


And as our eyes close to all we surpassed

We hear it calling in the gentle rain

A melody searches lost moments passed

How could forever have left us so fast

A lovely reminder that we should cherish each moment of each day with the ones we love, as one never knows or expects when we will suffer such a great loss.

Voted up ++ and sharing

Hugs, Faith Reaper

Music has a way of keeping our memories alive. I love your video choice this time. Love Story is one of my all time favorite movies.

'How could forever have left us so fast' - my heart ripped in two. This piece is beautiful in its sadness.... and the flower, left behind... as if forgotten there, uh.... the pain.

Time always goes by so quickly. We get caught up, and then don't have the time to cultivate what needs it the most.
