I Try to Forget

I go traipsing through my little day
Relishing things that come my way
Filling hours and minutes of time
With things exquisite and sublime
I find enchantment in all I see
The wonder of nature that touches me
And I try to forget….

The minutes all go dancing by
I turn my face up to the sky
I invite the sun to ravish me
On Mediterranean bed of scenery
And then I weave a tapestry
With silken word threads of poetry
And I try to forget….

I dance as though I am on fire
To the rhythmic tune of my desire
I put my heart in what I teach
And my soul in what I preach
I welcome twilight; then I pray
And I thank God for my day
I lay sweetly in my bed
Quiet down what's in my head
And I try…..
I really do try to forget…

That you are no longer a part of me.

    That ending was heartbreaking. You built it up and built it up and then I was like "Ahhh". When someone climbs into our lives and then gets ripped away so suddenly we distract ourselves in anyway we can. You've expressed yourself really well here!

    And I would give you an A+ if this was an assignment that read, "What is your understanding of this poem?" You worded yourself so well, my dear. Yes...loss is so difficult. I hate it! I really do! Thanks for the visit.

    Eileen, my lovely lady, the refrain of your poem says it all. Your words hit home with me, and they are penned quite beautifully. Keep writing! :) (PS, your avatar is very pretty!)

    Beautiful Eileen, the poem, not you lol, though you is too, of course. You certainly painted some great visions here in this. Favourite lines 'And then I weave a tapestry With silken word threads of poetry', That is so you. Take care, Richard

    Richard....you are a tease, aren't you? Well, if my poem is beautiful then I will forgive you, especially with that lovely compliment that follows. Hugs.
