Could That We Slip Away

There will be no tomorrow so we will hold our fate in silence We still have precious moments to spend in wondrous illusions and fool our hearts...if briefly accommodating goodbye in a world gone mad We will spend our last moments of reverent understanding with love's purest passions, without restraint and give thanks to the quiet breath of evening among the fiery ashes of war How dark and unending is cruelty How evil the times we live in Could that we slip away in the dark of night and leave this nightmare of exploding thunder that kills without mercy For death is coming and we will face its ruthlessness holding tight among the dead and dying I will reach for your fingers to grasp and wipe away your last tear until my last breath I wish we could have known another time another place 8/19/19 contest What If there is no Tomorrow

I believe the spectre of death causes us to truly live. Without it their is no vitality of urgency.

My heart and my imagination was so strongly stirred by this deep and emotional piece, Frederic. Your potent pen so tenderly depicts the finality of not having a tomorrow. I especially love your last two lines for a wistfully moving finale to this profound poem. Best wishes for a win and warmest wishes for you, dear poet and dear friend .. ~Susan
