The Whisper In The Breeze (poem)

A quiet night a whisper in the breeze

A scent of sorrow never felt before

An emptiness had opened up a door

And all at once my reason it did seize


A voice a song from somewhere in my past

A melancholy muse upon my soul

Implored my heart to help it pay some toll

For some unspoken woe which it amassed


It weaved a tale of all which love can be

The waves of Joy which masked its morning dew

For lovers two its heart could not be true

Its other Joys must bear its misery


My heart took in its sadness and its pain

As clouds appeared to cover up my fears

Was this the voice I hadn’t heard in years

Which whispers in the night amid the rain

Mysterious with a bit of melancholy. Love the "Mon Amour" video, hmmm, who is it by? Or is it one you made? Anyway, love it. Actually could understand most of it.

Voted up +++ and sharing

God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
