Love’s Echo (poem)

Updated on February 14, 2013

An echo on a lonely winter’s night

A scent that’s carried on forgotten breeze

A breath that’s held in timeless memories

It calls to me again to hold it tight

-

I feel the world once real begin to ease

As all I want is somewhere there in sight

As all I am is drawn by distant light

An echo does a lonely soul now please

-

Between those sheets what’s was returns to air

As dreams held in our hearts we freely shed

-

And with each kiss our passions start to flare

Till all her wished for whispers have been fed

-

I promised always that I will be there

And dawn will find me crying on her bed

      There is so much emotion in this writing that it takes me back to the days I shared with my best friend and husband. Voted up.

      A man with a soul is a beautiful thing, for he knows exactly where he is headed. Wonderful, as usual, Martin.

      Such a tender and yet sad poem, beautiful phrasing. And I just love that Indian Love Call, long time since I heard it last.

      Awesome piece

      Hmm, between the sheets passions start to flare...and yet she left...loneliness now, how beautifully written but sad. I have to say I was totally surprised to see (and hear) Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy and the Indian Love Call! Memories of classic couples..Voted up, awesome, and interesting.
