Perhaps (poem)

Updated on September 5, 2014

Some shadows in a distant window there

Perhaps some whispers in my memory

Refreshed my tears thus made it hard to see

This test of something come to steal the air


My mind my heart the bitterness of pain

There never was a kiss so hard to bear

Except for this the rest I’m unaware

Perhaps some distant star might help explain


Was this the ends of all that we’ve been through

Was this the silence mid that sweet refrain

Perhaps this truth will melt amid some rain

Which promise flowers there is life anew


Perhaps behind the pain some clarity

Forgotten past returning to my view

This window to how much I once loved you

Those shadows there were born of you and me

      Lots of wondering and reflection in this poem. Lovely, as usual.

      From happy to sad (the order I read this and the other one about love), you have shown a side from each. The pain of loss doesn't ever truly go away, but it gets more bearable in time. Thumbs up/Awesome. Thanks.
