Requiescat of Solitude.

Sweet summer winds, hear me
Ne’er endure this bewailing daybreak
For where whether not daylight rises
Now silenced eternal under prettified blossoms
Sleeps that sweet beauty that defined me.
Under the dimly faded blanket of Gaia 
In the blanched obsidian void of memory
Her slowly fading voice of once yesterdays
Never again to behold tomorrows promise
Or the faint blushing of a passionate today.
Just as with the finality of her passing
So to must I forge into the imminent
Over muted gray landscapes I must trod
Where ardors drying tarns now reflect me
Eroding under slow eyes of time…
As I linger waiting for him to claim me
She lies peaceful, only I, to grieve.

    Recquiescat until we rise again. I sometimes wonder if the circle will be unbroken someday and we will have a reunion of loved ones. This was sad and touching. As we drove by the cemetary where my mother lies, I caught my Dad quietly waving from the passenger seat. She died 16 days after their 50th. God Bless, Charlie. Vince

    You have written a very ,moving poem Charles I think"Eroding under slow eyes of time… As I linger waiting for him to claim me" are two of the saddest lines I have read...so bleak...heartbreaking
