Silver Bells Chimes for True Love

Updated on September 10, 2015

Everyone Will Hear Silver Bells One Day

She heard the silver bells chiming

softly in the night,

And they rang until the darkness

broke into light.

They chimed in the valley, and all

through the Gaps and Hollows,

They would chime until morning


She watched the snowflakes fall in

their dissimilar designs,

So picturesque, as they fell into trees,

clinging to leaves, to be forever enshrines.

Still, she watched with her face pressed

to the cold class---

the beauty of an icy winter’s day,

While she recalled her memories of when

her love----went away.

She was youthful then in her body and mind,

She laughed, she danced, she loved him

so dear----the one who left her behind.

Oh! What a handsome man was he—so tall,

so strong, his hair black as sin,

His dark eyes so molten-- shined with love

and passion;--no--she could never love anyone

else—not ever---again.

Looking and Waiting for Him
Looking and Waiting for Him

It was December in 1941, when he answered his country’s

call to war,

His love letters came each day, until---- they came no more.

Many years later at 92, her body frail, but her mind still sharp,

She sits in the dark, in her favorite rocking chair----waiting with

a loving heart,

Because in her mind they--- would not --always be apart.

Her sweet precious Darling —her Dear.

She felt a sudden tightness in her breast,

So she sits down in her rocking chair to rest.

Sometime, later in the night, one could still hear the

silver bells ringing louder throughout the mountain sides--

as a knock sounded at her door,

She managed to open it, --- then she took the hand that was

extended with strong young fingers---- because she was not

old anymore.

I knew you would come for me, my Dear,

I have waited all this time---right here.

He smiled as he passionately kissed her forever waiting lips,

until they were so fully sated,

His igneous dark eyes showed the yearning of how long he

had waited.

Her favorite niece came to her cabin the next day,

And found her Aunt’s cold body in her chair, but she said to

one and all—she did not die-----she just went away.

The niece looked out the window, her eyes searching in the

twilight, as her tears unchecked fell down her young face,

Do we get another change at love somewhere in a future time

and space.

Then she saw her once again young Aunt floating in the icy mist

with her young love at her side, so handsome---as she waved goodbye,

She was once again so young and beautiful, so extremely in love—

the niece could only sigh—she could hear her Aunt’s fading voice

—“My Darling, don’t cry.”

Silver Bells Chimes for True Love,

Sang the Winter White Dove.

And the silver bells chimed louder that day,

Yes, they rang louder that day when her beautiful young--

92 year old aunt—went happily away.

Visiting Her Aunt's Grave
Visiting Her Aunt's Grave

Silver Bells Chimes for True Love

The niece stood alone in the twilight by her aunt’s grave,

her heart was broken,

Then softly the sounds of chimes from the church filled

the air—as if a token.

Suddenly, a strong wind sweep through the family graveyard,

sending all the fallen leaves in disarray,

She needed to go, but the thought of her aunt made her stay.

Then as the first stars of the night did appear,

An Owl’s loud hoot-hoot, made her fear.

That her aunt was not happy where she might be,

Until, through the moonlight a lavender butterfly flew

near for her to see.

Oh, thank you auntie for the sign,

I know you are now happy—yes, it is

secure in my mind.

Cautiously, she walked towards the unpainted

gate to go away,

“I will visit you another day.”

    Up, awesome, and beautiful votes Bobbi. Wow, this was very deep and a poem that I can relate too. A very sad ending, but love can be that way sometimes. We spend a lot of time looking for true love, sometimes we find it, other times we don't. Either way, it is a wonderful feeling that can bring out the best in someone. Great job Bobbi.
