Shadows Pass My Door (poem)

Updated on August 27, 2014

I hear shadows pass my door

Echoed laughter from before

Hopes of heaven to restore

I won’t see her anymore

-

I hear shadows pass my door

Singing through my memory

Of the things which use to be

To this shell which once was me

-

Music coming down the hall

Echoed laughter from before

Precious moments still recall

Kisses celebrate them all

-

Constant noises would abound

Still some comfort could be found

Hopes of heaven to restore

Knowing that she was around

-

Look at hour it’s getting late

When will heart learn to bear weight

And open door to our fate

I won’t see her anymore

      Hey Mhatter99, That's a sad part of life that you described in an understandable poem. We put ourselves through these phases of life because of the choices we've made.

      Martin, this is beautiful even in its deep feeling of loss, yet memories oft help us to carry on and have faith in Self. A 'lost' love is never really lost, for love does not die, it only goes to a quieter place.

      The imagery and music in the video you chose is perfect for your poem.

      It is so good to have you back among us.

      I don't know if the heart ever heals from the loss of a loved one. This is a beautiful poem expressing a very sad event.

      Beautiful but sad....or sad, but beautiful. Either one works, Martin.

      Amazingly sad, Martin.

      The golden years are really not golden at all.

      It is a time of loss.

      You capture your loss in this remarkable poem.

      It is so good to see you back with HP friends.

      DJ.
