Echo (poem)

An echo of another left behind

The wind recalls the night when it was born

A memory forever now resigned

The dew with which these flowers meet the morn


The shadow of a song that won’t let go

Still calls the heart to play its part and weep

For souls so lost when magic lost its glow

The sadness in the scent the flowers keep


Is this the dream the destiny of love

The pain and tears to wash it all away

Just empty rusted sign posts up above

Where plastic covered flowers now do stay


Oh heart oh soul the sun of promise true

A fresh new endless flower blooms anew

Yes, love that last line, a fresh new flower blooms anew, leaving those plastic covered fake ones behind, just as the fake love! Really beautiful one here Mh.

Wow, sultry song and video - very powerful!!! Love it very much. I think this is my favorite poem and especially the video I know is my favorite - Not Broken . . . must share.

Voted Way Up. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Oh - you have so masterfully triggered that melancholy button in my heart. I'm sure all of us have that someone we can relate this to.
