The Wedding Ring

I've heard the music a smile secretly sings
And the sudden thunder a teardrop brings
No beginning or ending round a golden wedding ring
Together love and time keep on turning

It takes but one breath to keep on living
When your dreams and sorrows become the same thing
Empty eyes open there for the forgiving
Then memories invade, night becomes morning

Like the ring we wear, no beginning or end
We search to see where this journey shall send
Apart we are halfed neither night or day
Where nothing can grow, shall it be that way?

    Again Harry your comments almost make me cry...and when I saw a tear fall from the face from a man I thought had not the capability left to feel compassion its exactly what I felt. I heard my own heartbeat in my throat and felt the blood pump in my head..thunder inside me....blessings

    Really beautiful... I struggle with rhyme; it feels natural for you. Like another reply, I enjoy the unending ring references. J

    so this lovely soul keeps reading me, one of about 20 if i'm lucky, and actually lauds my works.....well, read the first line of this luscious work of art and then read some of my works and you, like me, will wonder why and when she even finds the time to read me..girl, you touch a part of my soul that is dying slowly..thanks for your poems and for being part of a very small fan base YOUR'S IN ALL THE UNIVERSE HAS TO PROVIDE POETS SUCH AS YOURSELF...PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~

    I like the infinity in this poem - everything bears a cost for sure, perpetual gain & giving - brilliant use of classic metaphors, a very challenging prowess to develop Donna - great degree of originality -
