Thought Left Behind (poem)

Updated on May 19, 2013

Just where will it lead this thought left behind

Through fields of moments where reflections grow

And winds will still sweep a blossom through mind

Some lingering kiss which will not let go


This echo of hope of another day

Where dreams by starlight would splendor ignite

As streams of wonder were put on display

And each sigh of dawn met promised delight


My heart now beats the song of its reply

Tread softly comes a murmuring refrain

It gives no meaning nor some depth to why

As something left forgotten might explain


And so sweet thought we dance another time

When I have put some meaning to life’s rhyme

      Lovely choice of words, use of alliteration, metaphor - there's even a sense of onomatopoeia about it. Beautiful.
