Forever Young

What beauty shared with carefree steps,
your laughing heart would trip with grace
and lift our spirits as you slept -
a soul that's swept to our embrace.

Unfurrowed brow with silken cheeks
that blush with youthful innocence,
now safe within a world we'll seek
when all our days on earth are spent.

So wait Dear Heart, we will be there -
older and with tell-tale traces
from smiles of stories that we shared
reminded of your lovely face.

In time, my darling, we will come
to find you still forever young.

I lost my youngest daughter, age 19. I truly understand the faith that it takes to believe in the ultimate reunion. This is a very well formed sonnet. Beautiful.
