He Called Me Luverly

He Called Me Luverly

A Poem by Ruth

Some days they are with you and memories creep in...


Grief is a tender invasion at times
like a flower that bides its time
emotions ebb and flow 
from the spring of youth
to the autumn of a painful fall
I read your messages this morning
poetry that always paused me
from such gentle epiphanies
you purged through the pain 
you always called me luverly
I still see your smiles
kindness you bestowed to many
compassion and empathy 
that will ripple through times to come
grief is both tender and heavy 
an invasion that leaves pangs
not for the freedom you now have
more for the simple fact
I wish to say 
hello dear heart
to lose is to know silence
in its most truest form
tis but a visceral invasion
on a rainy, chilled dawn
you always called me luverly
I miss your softness
as clouds form 
this nostalgic morn

"He Called Me Luverly"
Poppy Ruth silver,
"Grief is a tender invasion at times" This first line led me to the well of your own experience of memory and it was really deep! "Emotions ebb and flow from the spring of youth to the Autumn of a painful fall" From spring's joy to a painful fall is so revealing in that I understand this feeling of being upright and then the bottom falls out. Good use of words.
Then the reality of this loss..." to loose is to know silence" and "I miss your softness" The message was understandable and relatable to me. I sure enjoyed your poem Poppy1
Bless you.

Luverly....what a great word, and recalls the musical hit of the 50s that I love, Rogers and Hammerstein ?
Anyway, I digress, a fine write.

it filled in me a feeling of sadness, like that of when it rains for days and you really miss the sun. the mind filled with sadness, from where to begin is like a key to the mission. well penned! i liked it, keep it up!

Your words are soft and delicate, yet filled with so much emotion. I can feel the sadness. You have touched my heart Poppy.
