Sweet Sorrow

I have hid mine heart,
Within a prison cell,
Dark and cold,
Whose key, only you hold.

I have buried mine memories,
Within the sands of time,
None is bare,
Those secrets, only you and I 
share.

From thenceforth do we part,
From light and into darkness 
do I tarry,
Into perdition,
E'en to the close of my time.

The memory of you, doth 
linger,
E'en as the flowers, sprout on 
graves,
And as the sun, doth shine,
E'en on the viper,

So I, e'en through the curse of 
time,
Tarry forth, 
E'en to the sunset of my life,
These memories, a constant 
companion.

    Your country is facinating and I would like to learn more of it. My current contest would value an entry on Shamaism in Kenya. I have read of the Kikuyu shamans perhaps you would write for us a tale of how god is or was reached through the Shamanic traditions of your homeland? Light & Love

    Memories stay with us even though we have to move on with each year it gets better but never goes away. I really like the way that you approached the subject here good work. Thank you for your comments on my work. Keep writing. I sent you soup mail. Sara

    We linger within time yet time moves on. We move with time yet we linger till the very last moment...

    touching verse. perhaps ..my..would serve better than...mine...& tarry..means lingering...forth...means going...so tarry forth is a bit confusing? Light & Love
