In Response To My First Poem


The congregation
mingled within the silent
stone slabs of their
ancestors, a final goodbye
to yet another
destined to leave this place.
Yet to one, in this his
profound sorrow an
enchanting moment.
He craved!  With a soul
sensitive and true to
touch a living memory,
his lips again to caress
her symbolic smile.
His need to glance upon
her northern eyes of blue,
stroke her flowing
“Celtic Flame”
That, while strolling in lanes
of love rebelled against
the moorland breeze.
He desired to paint this
memory of that moment
the very first day they met,
bestow in this a silent tribute
to the emotions within
their secrets, those, no one
else could ever share!

first posted 2nd may 2010


Our secrets to keep forever
The two of us only will share,
This my darling is my promise
To you so far away down there.

Oh yes I can hear and see you
From this my place far up above,
I listen to your sweet whisper
See us in your portrait of our love.

Alas ‘tis only my bare bones
That lay idle beneath your feet,
Leaving everything about me
In your memory this my treat.

Our precious although short moments
Forever lives on in my soul,
Until one day yet far away
The final end your earthly role.

Then once again true love will meet
Your need to touch my Celtic Flame,
Mine to gaze upon eyes of green
Our lips passionate wild untame!

    When a loved one passes away they can sometimes take us with them... I do believe in my heart that a reunion is waiting after death... A tender and deeply moving response to your first poem. Beautifully written, Harry!
