Love still lives here.... by JaneClaire
Clear

Some lights still flicker in defiance
a homesick longing for ever after
tell stories of what might have been
an ache that decides not to leave
dreams that blend into shadow
the pounding rain of misgiving
Could I ever forget one such as he
when meeting was wide-eyed delight
and his leaving was disbelieving
everything I thought would be
his brief adieu still ringing out
beckoning him to all else but me
I still hear his big heart booming
his spirit wild with excitement
an exuberant voice philosophizing
into the bright bow of night
I hear his contagious laughter
solemnly read his romantic plights
Even in the prickling dawn of truth
that I’d spend my life with another
I secretly hid his love words to me
in the lit attic of our barred house
and sometimes they roll like a mist
o’er the bench, the light and the tree

    Jane, what a magnificent write to accompany the soulful art. My dear friend, I am so pleased you placed this, as that in itself has its significance of opening it and facing it. May the light of love burn in two hearts and bring healing. Much love.

  • Thank you my dear friend. That means the world to me. xx

    Hello Jane
    Wise hindsight words of love, love whose “lights still flicker in defiance” (and maybe so they ought)
    Your thoughtful poem and art speak of a true love and that is indeed wonderful Jane
    Lovely to both ‘see’ you and read your poetry again
