Echo (poem)

Updated on February 14, 2013

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

      Every wilted love, steals something in us, in return for what it comes to plant. Beautiful write hatter! Voted up as always.

      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.
