Mistress Of The Sunset (poem)

Updated on August 20, 2014

Oh mistress of the sunset wait for me

Our day was long and blessed with songs of Joy

As waves of wonder destiny deploy

Till mists of you was all my soul could see


My lady linger o’er this lasting while

Please hold me mold me in the time well spent

That I might ever live within its scent

And in the darkness there recall your smile


Sweet summers’ lasting glow I love you so

Let everything that breaths on earth now know

I curse the fact that I must let you go

May every tear I shed be nature’s woe


Good night delight my days now disappear

Till morning comes and finds me waiting here

      Beautiful work !!!

      You have created such great imagery in this piece and the use of the seasons ending works so well with the loss of love .

      Sometimes you have to hold on to a good thing for as long as you can, because once you separate, things may never be the same.

      Such beautiful words that I am taken by, you have a beautiful sense of flow and style, it just drifts right off the page! We wait for our maiden, who like a magnet, attracts us to her serene beauty! When she must leave us, we weep, but we rejoice to live another day, and we wait for another chance.

      Beautiful work my friend! Voted up.
