Devotion (poem)

Updated on March 18, 2015

There by devotion he is waiting there

Dreams of tomorrow are locked in his stare

This legend of time the people all share

What was the love which commanded this flare

-

What was the scent which he felt in the air

What was it that he alone was aware

What drift in the wind was he set upon

What scrumptious rumors this marvel would bear

-

The gaze in his eyes had spread everywhere

Lost in devotion this fodder for spawn

The dreams of others would he soon don

And still he lingered to something there

-

Soon crowd of confusion would welcome dawn

To this mystery a curtain was drawn

For something they lost he would be their pawn

And still he sat beyond a need to care

-

It was decided this could not go on

They would put an end to this silent swan

But when they met they found a heart there drawn

With his devotion he at last had gone

      It is nice to be appreciated when you are so devoted to someone. It sure helps if the feeling is mutual.

      Very thought provoking and mysterious. Do I hear an echo in here? :-p Thought, I might also add a bit haunting.

      Martin, this one is pure melancholy, your beautiful words, the music, and I just loved the image with the poppies very evocative.

      My best to you, enjoy the weekend.

      We must be devoted to our dreams in order to make them reality. Deep piece, Martin.
