The Last Words (poem)

Updated on June 26, 2012

I’ll wait for you where love devours the night

The last words of a final note he left

Gone were the arms that used to hold her tight

Those hopeful sighs the tears they cried bereft


It seemed that here their love so grand had waned

A world of scars now echoed them to part

To distant stars they found their sights had trained

And fortune had dominion of their heart


And so she grew in beauty of her years

She even wed and raised a family

She rode the wave of all her sweat and tears

From time to time her thoughts returned to he


Soon age brought nights when death was in the air

And in those shadows he was waiting there

      I like the exercise of writing sonnets. I use haiku for the same reason, to order my thoughts and focus.

      Nice. You know, I have a hard time writing sonnets, but you don't seem to. Nice work. Well done. Up and shared.

      This poem evokes deep emotion. Love is a journey that none of us can predict. I hit many buttons.
