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.
