Loves essence



Dedicated to: "The Rambling Poet"

Inspired by her beautiful picture



There is nothing more heartbreaking than the demise of ones essence
no longer could she hold loves magic alone within herself
she tried to trick the Gods into believing his love was still there
but they knew they always do
he was gone and along with him his love followed
her world of sunshine and candy kisses was no more
the darkened path lay ahead as tears traced down her cheek
her face shown brightly one more time as his essence rose
away and vanished into the night
his soul was no longer touching hers
she lay herself down and closed her eyes one last time
and so to ends her precious rhyme...

    I hope you have told Constance you posted this, Sharon. She will love the dedication. I'll send her an email to be sure she sees this. Indeed, Constance is a wonderful, sensitive lady. And thanks so much for the Soup mail. I am relieved to hear there was no quake in SF. Love, Carolyn

    *Smile ~ this amazing painting amid verse is sooo stirring and laced with compassion, beauty and love "My 'Dear, *Beautiful, Gifted & Priceless, Sharon Ruebel!!!'" ~ "Yes, 'Beautiful *Constance Is A Treasure to Be Loved'" &, "Your *Precious Heart,'" brushed its truth sooo very perfectly within these, bluebright hues; "Beautiful, 'Just Like *You!!!'" ~ "Love, 'Always,'" John!:)* ~
