A Blanket Of Love
and post notes and photos about your poem like Emile Pinet.
Two aging lovers emotionally tethered to each other
know that death will come for one of them first.
And as time takes its toll sadness swells up
within their hearts when they think about it.
The acceptance of the inevitability of the other’s death
triggers tears, a very human experience.
Such feelings come straight from the heart
where love’s a two edged sword.
Memories gently roll through their minds
exploring their sphere of recognition.
And like old films of days gone by,
they chuckle at long forgotten escapades
of two children, lost in innocent play.
They recall broken dreams with some regret
yet, they’re wrapped in a blanket of love
for when you share one heart, all times are happy ones.
They often retreat to their own internal space
where they face a tide of sad emotions
that ebb and flow as the years unfold.
Their apprehensions of who will die first strikes a cord
of uncertainty, that vibrates within both their hearts.
When the time comes to die, you simply close your eyes
let out a breath, and say a silent yes!
Dying’s not the scary part...living on is!
