Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

My sizzling flame has faded in the midst of Summer's embrace
and taken my virgin flower of delicately woven lace

In subtle shadows and fading light
silently in bewilderment I crumble without sight

For each year of happiness and silver dream abound
now a resonating memory silent without a sound

As I walk the cobble stone path where our days had found no end
I raise my arms above and pray for this love to mend 

If only a chance should fall my way
this love I would cherish with each passing day

In subtle shadows and fading light
each memory with you held forever in moonlight

A Flame Once Burned



~ My sizzling flame has faded in the midst of Summer's embrace and taken my virgin flower of delicately woven lace In subtle shadows and fading light silently in bewilderment I crumble without sight For each year of happiness and silver dream abound now a resonating memory silent without a sound As I walk the cobble stone path where our days had found no end I raise my arms above and pray for this love to mend If only a God-sent chance should fall my weary way this love I would cherish endless with each passing day In subtle shadows and fading light each memory of you held forever in soft moonlight ~ Contest
