Where Frozen Embers Still Burn

Her hand of friendship, not desire
Though we traveled roads long and far
My heart was hers for all to lend
She sought from life a blazing star

The years became a seedless tree
A love kept silent, never grew
My honor held in quiet stead
As she disappeared from view

An Autumn night, as years had passed
Came gentle knock, my open door
And there she stood in quiet pose
A rushing kiss, the empty floor

A night we found of hungered bliss
The embers cold to passion's fire
A last goodby, it was her gift
She'd always known my heart's desire

    Dear Frederic, How wonderful that you and she finally had a night of "hungered bliss." Even if it was a last goodbye, it is something you will always remember. Thanks for you kind comments and best wishes to you for success in the contest. Love, Carolyn
