The Journey of Love

The Journey of Love
                               Authored by Chuck Keys    

Reading a poem of love I wonder,
what does a warm summer day feel, 
when it has no memory of the loss of
how its heat faded in time, ever so slow,
one tiny silent drip at a time, like a leaky faucet.
 
It comes to pass eventually,
knowing that time has digested the differences 
from what it was, 
to what it is and to what it will be. 
It is forever lost at this time.

A lonely somberness soon fills the void of the wonder and warmth, 
daylight ebbs and flows into darkness and soon loses its distinction. 
Loneliness follows and the love is non-retrievable,
without love, life is never the same ...
an endless emptiness follows and stays, lingering.

    "Yes," without love life seems so much more mundane and, the suns warmth seems to escape ourselves as day by day, we journey about not ever knowing, how beautiful life could be; so much more if, We could only hold on to Our Hearts Dreams of, never letting go of love; when love, falls from the stars above, Spelling Our Deatiny--Smile, I guess they call it; these two hearts as one,"Faith! Wonderful pondering--"Warmth to You & Yours," John!:) ~

    Thank you for taking us on this journey, Chuck. There is an emptiness that follows the loss of love (much like the loss of warmth on a summer day). Like the analogy of the leaky faucet, because the "endless emptiness" seems to grow slowly until we can no longer remember the joy of love. Excellent poem! Love, Carolyn
