It’s Calling (poem)

Updated on February 2, 2015

It’s calling ever calling from afar

A scent of something which was left behind

The answer to a long forgotten scar

A shadow which still lingers in his mind

-

It’s calling o’er the sands of yesterday

It’s calling from the passages of night

It’s calling from the things which couldn’t stay

Recalling memories of mixed delight

-

The days of broken dreams and bitter rain

The bitter winters and the rose’s thorns

And moments tossed which no one would explain

Forestalling tender dew drops caused by scorns

-

It’s calling I’m recalling as I go

The reasons that I still do love her so

      For many years this could have been my poem. But now I turn deaf ears to that calling ...I hope.

      Sending you many Angels this evening, Martin.

      Have a lovely lovely weekend :) ps

      I seem determined to reopen the wound I have, caused by a love that couldn't be. Why do we revisit, countless times? This was especially beautiful.
