Those Golden Days

Those Golden Days

A Poem by Dara
"

Remembering a close encounter of the loving kind.

"

I watch as fallen leaves swirl

in pools of red,  auburn and gold

and my thoughts drift back

to another time

as tender memories unfold.

Those days of walking hand in hand

sitting by the fire and

scrolling in the sand.

Days made all the more precious

because I knew you couldn't stay

but love you I did

before you went away.

I love Eva Cassidy. The song 'Autumn Leaves'. A classic. I liked your words and thoughts. Life does move too quickly. Sometimes, all we have left is old faces and places remembered. Thank you Dara for sharing the amazing poetry.

Those words... so lovely, Dara.. words printed on your heart. Phrases gently, warmly placed they are; enough to re-awaken hidden emotions. As for Eva and the lyrics.. beautiful, so appropriate.
