My Love

My love is gone, but he has not gone far.
I see his golden locks in waves of wheat,
the blaze of his blue eyes in each bright star;
in dewy blooms of red, his lips so sweet;
his smile in morning sun I rise to greet.
Oh, whether it be day or night, I swear
I see my wondrous lover everywhere!

His scent is with me too, for I inhale
him as I walk through woods of tall pine trees.
I taste him in fresh rain, and I can tell
that he is near me when a summer breeze
caresses me; my mind can be at ease!
For though he’s gone, I know my love will be
In beauty evermore surrounding me.

My big congratulations on your first place, Andrea! Your tribute to your sweetheart echoes with must have loved him very deeply. I take the liberty to quote some lines from one of my poems," The truest love can never end and through loss: we realize the immensity of devotion. " Thank you for your comments. Best Wishes, Andrew.

not sure you will read this, Andrew, but it's totally fictional. I have not lost anyone like this in my life. I just imagined having such a great love that even after death, I would see him in everything!
