A LOVE REMEMBERED

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

Few words, say so much
as the message of silence
and the parting touch
so sad, yet tender 

marking the end
of what we shared
the love that remains
but goes undeclared 

Our eyes are so fluent
with words never spoken
with hopes and dreams
and hearts that are broken 

Two souls bonded
with memories together
but never blessed
with the gift of forever 

A perfect love
an unanswered prayer
the truth’s unavoidable
in a perfect affair 

The whispers remain
and the memories will last
with the message of silence
from out of the past 

and a love remembered

        2. From what you are digging up I’m a little worried that the newer me won’t match up to the older me! Ha!!
          Are you going to catch any of the effects of this Tropical Storm?
