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

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

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

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