We May Meet Again

Beneath long lashes, misty clad,
      Your limpid eyes are sometimes sad;
            They bring to mind a homeless waif
                  Engulfed in rain with nowhere safe

Most times I find a cheerful light
      Within your eyes that sparkles bright,
            And though my thoughts I try to hide
                  My happiness wells up inside

At dawn I see your eyes aglow
      Like founts through which your passions flow;
            And when I’m low they always loom
                  Like morning glories through the gloom 

Your smile ashine beneath my gaze
      Effulgent eyes beam all ablaze:
            A look, a touch, a kiss I yearn,
                  You slowly make my body burn

While at your side and in a heap
      I scanned your eyes, half closed, asleep,
            And as you slept with pillow clutched,
                  Your eyelids with my lips I touched

And if you’ve ever wondered why
      I try to search within each eye,
            Though past is past, your eyes remind
                  Of bygone times when love was kind

Yet, though your eyes still cast a spell
      They seem to bid a fond farewell,
            Reflecting but a fading storm
                  Although I know your thoughts are warm

But now our paths will part, alas,
      For good things always come to pass;
            Perhaps it lies within God’s ken
                  That someday we may meet again

    when you first came to this site and I first met you I knew that you would be one that would go far. I could tell immediately that your ability to put words together with a mastery of the the english language and the ability to reach deep into the depths and bring out feelings and emotions like few others I have met or read that you would become one of the best writers on the sight. My efforts pale beside your's Huggs TLee

    A romantic fizz with quiet and serene passion, Terry. Sad though happy thoughts, and this ends with hope. Elizabeth had written once that I would enjoy your work...she was totally right! Keep well...Mikki

    What a poignantly written work of art.. I love your rhyming pattern... I use the same in most of my work. I will be reading more of your posts as time passes. You and I sometimes write with the same pen...... Regards... Jake

    I am speechless. This poem is wonderful.

    There just aren't enough appropriate words to tell you how much this touched my soul and quite literally plucked at the strings of my heart. What woman alive would not want such tender thoughts written of love about her...I know I would.

    Like a second sense we can recognize the little signs that says it is over. Nostalgia so gently spoken all through this. Luv, Lizzie

    Touches the heart like a violin concerto. Sorrow softened by the delicate remembrance of the journey. Enjoyed, John.
