Precious Few (poem)

Updated on January 14, 2014

The stories which we shared

The marvels we have fared

Win some of them

Does it really matter in the long run

Sifting secrets from the golden sands

Moments of a precious few

Other lovers wished they knew

-

What darknesses we dared

What whispers well prepared

And over what

To turn another cheek and fly away

Only to return for a forgotten kiss

Moments of a precious few

Other hearts could beat so true

-

Over mysteries we cared

Over passions which were flared

Do we recall

Tangled in confused ticking of a mind

Shadows which cowered from familiar smile

Moments of a precious few

The light of hope a dream once drew

-

For all which once was aired

Forever has repaired

And once again

Befuddled love stories wander about

Warm hugs to others knowing they are there

Moments of a precious few

Which our winds now amble through

      Beautiful, Martin. This line caught my fancy especially:

      ". . . Sifting secrets from the golden sands . . . "

      It stirs so many senses. The music's melody and beat suit perfectly.

      Your poem is very touching. Read it slowly. It brings to mind how important it is to share this journey called life. Love is truly a celebration in our universe!
