Shores Of Moments (poem)

There on the shores of moments long before

He drifts along the tides of all now past

With winds which promise just one pleasure more

Adrift in sands which let each heartbeat last


The sunset of the day reflects in tears

The ocean whispers back sweet Joy’s refrain

Awash in this is meaning of his years

And for his while sweeps nothing to explain


He watches waves of memories arise

They dance amid the waters once he knew

Their passing sends a rainbow to the skies

A splendor soaring from a life he drew


And as his eyes closed to his current dream

He feels the kiss of her who made it gleam

A very introspective verse Mhatter99, but I'm afraid your secret is out, now that we know what you look like without your hat and glasses. :)

Have a great day,

Spoken like a true romantic who has known great love ;) I chuckled when I read Faith's comment because my first thought was, "is that underwear?" The picture decieves, one doesn't expect the beautiful, serious poem that follows.

Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.
