Farewell Sweet Love.

Updated on November 18, 2010

What shall I say,

as I watch your rain

pour among this sweet

summers breath?

What thoughts shall I have

to believe only the truth in a lie?

For time among us is broken and short,

And I must dream before I wake.

I watch your laugh,

oh what a glorious smile,

that drowns the regrets

that burn your face!

Hail this king and queen,

that burdens our minds

with burning witches

and hated anthems.

These thoughts

lack in meaning

but are filled with love.

So I bid you farewell

and a goodnights rest.

Farewell,

sweet love.

May I see you

when I awake from

eternal rest.

My empthay

bleeds my truth, and that is why I must say goodnight.

~Laurie~

      Parting is such sweet sorrow and to reunite after a rebirth is sublime. You conveyed a heart of hope and despair together. I liked your meter and flow of verse, very well done. Bravo

      Thank you Saddlerider! There is always a flicker of hope and a tad of despair in words, well in most of mine! That balance of life that gives us hope and allows us to experience it to the fullest.

      Blessings,

      Another nicely written poem. I heard whispers of Hamlet during the last few lines when the sweet farewells were being granted.

      Thank you Doug. I have always loved the poetry of the past, and the poetry of the present. Thank you for your compliments.

      Laurie -my sense of it as I read was that it was SO intimate and personal, I could only look enough to realize how deep you feel and how much you have endured. It's a beautiful poem and I'll be voting it accordingly - UP, beautiful, awesome. But I doubt if I could honestly say it is "useful" because of its very individual and personal nature. Hugs.

      Thank you Nellieanna. Words are often born out of experiences one has to endure, and enjoy. Thank goodness for the wonderful experiences too!

      ...it`s amazing what you can say with so few words and yet make your readers feel this is an epic piece of writing - and I love your command of a language which is so unique to you and a pleasure for us to read ....... even though there`s a bitter in the sweet of love and living .........

      Thank you Epigramman-There is always a bittersweet in the love and living of life. We love in our lives and at times we lose those we love-to perhaps to be seen in the heavens above when we reach our final destination.

      Blessings,

      Laurie

      Thank you Pookie! Love you!

      Thank you Lovely Acaetnna. Writing always comes from the heart and soul I say. And I have read yours and found that to be so very true in your writing.

      Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you often.

      Blessings,

      Laurie
