A sad one…Love and loss…

 

And over the semblance of yolks my yearnings kept

Bindings of secrets when my ferried sighs drew near

I named thee Sweet Valentine in loquacious silence

And in the boundless deep I sang of yonder souvenir.

 

Fainteth not my soul! I must be weary and love-veiled

Thou art my fairy till time henceforth beguiles no more

And scenes laid where sleeping witnesses scorneth death

It shall be fitting in nature’s pride, twain destiny in store.

 

Exprest this sadness with liberty and nib of a poet’s pen

And eyes bedewed by tearful mourn and pinings repaid

Hail not death! Hail life;though all must justly obeyeth

Fondly I wail heavenward with phrensied woe dismayed.

death be scorned, death be feared...but when death does welcome a loved one...we are not too keen on its hospitality...but we will all visit him someday, so we must make the most of our time with others and with ourselves.

Love lost and not forgotten -- the loss to the person is sometimes the gain to the poet.

Deeply painful, yet undeterred. Well, poetry comes from undeterred emotion. Very beautiful. Thank you for the read request.

A beautifully eloquent celebration of love and a testament to believe in the hereafter and reunions with loved and sorely missed souls.
