Eternity of Tears

The fields are full of daisies
The skies are sapphire blue;
By the arbor in the garden
I wait, my love for you.
The garden blooms with poppies
Their flame burns bright and gay;
With scent of rose and honey
Will you come to me today?

Through the hours together
In scented copse we lie;
In the blaze of golden weather
Beneath a deep blue sky.
When we would have our pleasure
For such a transitory stay;
Should we squander leisure
Will you come to me today?

Life has not much to offer
Man has naught to lose;
This day chance agrees to proffer
What we dare not now refuse.
We will take this fleeting hour
In this silent hazy gloom;
While the poppies are in flower
And the roses are in bloom

If time remembers later
And tries to claim her due;
Our grieving will be greater
Than the wonder I had with you.
When ignited by your laughter
Through sad and lonely years
I will find in the hereafter
An eternity of tears.

    In matters of the heart, ladies have so many more layers of expression than we men. I believe that this poem could only have been written by a lady, with its insights and its grasp of the deeper levels of human relationships. There is beauty in the descriptions of nature, but a far more profound understanding of love, either blooming or fading. I have much to learn!

    My poem - Love Never Loses its Own - was written after my wife passed away, it dealt with the love that was and the fact that to me the love we had was so strong that though separated, we were only as far away from each other as the touch of our fingers - to me, that is true love - never endling, never lost.

    Love is for the hopeful. To mend their broken hearts. And days gone by can only lie. If sadness never parts.

    YOU PUT A FIRE UNDER MY SEAT. THE WORDS JUST POURED. Hope you like it! I would love to post ours together. Can you imagine if others try this? Your words struck a match. Surely, others have experienced this and would love to have a go. Hope you find it tasteful, and that you like its contrast. Hugs, dear, you are a jewel here. PS. In case the rumours start, I am straight, married and happy ;-) This is sisterhood at its finest. Fist bump from cheeky me.
