NEVER TO BE MINE

Not with my arms but with a heart that blesses your reveries, may peace reside within your chest... is it possible to love you less? Perhaps allow the sun to brush your hair in the luminescence of dawn? Even autumn envies you as white light moves with your scent and possesses your laughter never to be mine again in times of harvest or falling rain… and from stars above, may your eyes remember our blades of grass while I half-close the damp field of memorials creaking on the burial of a resting place that finds me kneeling, wailing, asking how time can drown our adventures much too soon... as I stumble upon this cruel, bruised night.

Sometimes a poem touches me in such a way that I have no words to express how I feel, this is sad and touching and so beautiful.

The rusticity of the scenic reminiscence of love's long memory is beautifully expressed in this poem Nette. Time rarely answers the heart. "Your laughter never to be mine again in times of harvest or in falling rain..." that's very beautiful pain...J.A.B.
