A Sonnet For Eduardo

The day I left Madrid, I waved goodbye to someone dear to me. I still can see his dark brown eyes that could not tell a lie, those same eyes I’d beheld so tenderly each day when he would show up at my door. Where is my friend Eduardo, whom I left behind so long ago and never more would see again? I know he was bereft from letters that he sent, and I replied that we would meet again. I could not know how wrong I was or if he ever cried for me. How easily I let him go! How innocent and beautiful was he! And he remains so - in my memory. For the Soulful Words Poetry Contest of Kim Morrison

I read this sonnet over and over, while listening to Bach's Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, Prelude. Perfect music for a perfect sonnet. A very tasty treat Andrea.
