The lament of a summer breeze is heard to make the gilded leaves of Autumn sigh. And after months without a single word, love lost its wings and can no longer fly. Shadows form silhouettes in the moonlight, tethering wishes and hopes to a dream. And haunted by lost love, she cries at night, as lonely feelings fuel a silent scream. She remembers the sweet taste of his kiss and the way he left her feeling fulfilled. He swore he'd write daily without remiss, but those letters stopped the day he got killed. She never questioned why he'd gone to war for she knew, freedom was worth dying for. (Sonnet) Sept. 1, 2018

Romantic yet, so sad; war has ruined many a life; leaving only memories. Well penned.
