In The Dark (poem)

Updated on September 21, 2014

Twas in the dark they searched for it

Some missing clue that didn’t fit

A truth their minds could not admit

But to their eyes they must submit


A love like theirs no storm could split

A candlelight was always lit

A troubled day would end near bed

But on this bed now questions sit


The legend of their love so spread

Their kisses even time acquit

Imagination thrilled each head

But here and now all that has flit


By dreams like theirs such hopes were fed

Each memory young hearts commit

It was for them moonlight was shed

But even starlight now turns red


Now every dream is teardrop shred

There were no words and none were said

Into tomorrow they soon fled

But not with him his love was dead

      Eric said my sentiments as well. Those who have ever-lasting love are very fortunate.
