Image result for one gray hair art

One last gray hair clings to my breast from times I held you in my arms. It speaks to me of one last rest but more to hold me with its charms. Remembering, and cherishing. I pray its grasp is firm and strong and holds my heart with relevance, to know with you my passions long for love not paused by circumstance. Fidelity, Serenity. 02/14/2018

Just beautiful, Charlie - so touching and emotional. It breaks my heart to point out that 2nd stanza calls for same rhyme scheme in first 4 lines as in 1st stanza. PLEASE do not delete this gem, it is an absolute keeper. I hope I'm being helpful, not a bummer! I truly love this poem. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

A souvenir in presence and emotion and - written so delicately, touchingly. Such naturally fine metre too; that takes true skill and affection for your theme. Beautiful.
