Timeless Passion - A Poem

Updated on October 23, 2019
Senoritaa profile image

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.

Background

A poem about undying passion that stays on for eons together. Even when bodies lie beneath their graves, the passion remains ignited within the souls, whose journeys continue within new bodies.

Source

The Poem

A thousand years have gone by

There lay our graves so still

Mountains, rivers, and times change

Passing on the deathly chill


United at heart, divided at will

Death could yet take a chance

Beneath the soil the spark remains

Of our omnipresent stance


The hide wears away, and

Washed is the blood within

The stone rings a silent bell

Summons a rhyming din


The journey of the soul pertains

To yet another broken dream

Shattered above, connected below

Though pointless it may seem


A thousand years have gone by

Yet we smile, and keep holding on

To the passion we began before time

And pass it on to the newly born

      Passion for life and love motivates us to carry on and get through those broken dreams. Beautiful!

      I do believe authentic love never dies and that people stay connected. I also love poets who rhyme well. You do that. It is never forced or nonsensical. This is a simply lovely poem.

      I loved the thematic treatment of endless cycle of birth and rebirth and the passion the follows like shadow with every new life.

      Wonderful piece of writing.
