IN THE AFTERGLOW OF OUR LOVE

IN THE AFTERGLOW OF OUR LOVE

A Poem by anne p. murray- LadeeAnne




In the afterglow of our love
Like doves in flight we gracefully soared
Wings spreading over land and sea
Up and above the clouds we flew

~
Then we shed our glorious wings
To keep tethered to earthly ground
Colored feathers faded with age
As the sun held us in its love
~
Now you’re a shadow in my tear stained heart
Of unheard whispers in misty memories
My hands reach out to touch your face
Only to find a stillness in a subtle breeze
~
Your reflection plays on still waters now
Everything carries me to you
Kissing places in my dreams
Of many nights I smiled

~
Your silent footprints echo in the darkness
Of faded hours that have fallen

In your last memories...
That whisper softly in these rooms

~
