Maybe The Last Letter To My Beloved

My heart?
You have always owned that,
I'm surprised you didn't know.

Its flow?
How do I explain without being unkind,
simply, its flow is mine.

There's the barb, my vision puts me on a different flight
I own a non redeemable ticket...a ticket I clutch.

Love and age walk hand in hand.
I've had my sunrise...walking with resolve to my sunset.
I spent too much of my time trying to reach the horizon 
now, happy to enjoy the sky's perfect joint with its mate.

Searching for that pot of gold? Some do...but not me.
That sort live with regret. They chased the lie, missed the rainbow.
Not I...I am happy to enjoy the breeze...cool and invigorating.

My heart? You own that. You always will.

At the fork...recently, I chose a different path.
I've looked behind me, I've looked ahead...I'm sorry, my love,
I just don't see you there.

It is sad to think of a loved one not being there but for many that is a cruel reality. This is an eloquent piece. It is good to enjoy our love while it is with us for tomorrow holds no promises.

Hi Maurice, WOW,,,, and I thought I was the only one... Well, I once had a leprechaun, and he took all the gold. Anyways, everything faded right after. I'm kidding about the leprechaun. I truly love this, not many can admit, to loving someone, and forgetting and wanting to reach for the flames. Enjoyed...LINDA
