There We Stood (poem)

A teardrop’s flow

Which led to a kiss

Those summer nights

And all the magic youth will brings

And there we stood


The city’s glow

As we sipped the wine

Of our wedding day

So high upon our mountain top

And there we stood


We didn’t know

The thistle and thorns

Which constantly grew

In our luscious spring garden

And there we stood


So we would grow

Learning how to dance

Learning how to trust

Learning the power of freedom

And there we stood


Such dreams we’d show

Others wondrous eyes

Who entered our world

Of timeless possibilities

And there we stood


Then came life’s blow

Kiss my morning

The bright scent of flowers

As she didn’t rise from our bed

And there I stood

A beautiful tribute to loving someone, and then feeling the helplessness

when loss encompasses your world. Of all the skills we learn while

living, we are never prepared for the sting of death when it strikes

our beloved.

You have done a wonderful job, giving a brief of loving, living

and losing your soul mate.

God bless, Martin.

You have it all here, Martin, the Spring budding, the summer blooms, the autumn with the falling leaves and weeds and the cold, barren winter when all seems so empty. We do, so much, miss those who have left us behind.

Sadly, these wonderful things never seem to last forever. Our mortality is such a crutch to bear.
