So Shall It Be In The End

What choice has bittersweet despair, A dying rose, An empty chair. Shall I then grieve and weep for thee And temper broken heart and soul So I can cherish one more gaze Of happiness, of summer days And bristle with abiding love Of life cast now in shade and brook, This ebb which pains with force and fate United soon through heavens gate.

Amazing Piece. Wayne. Such imagery in few word poetic words, no more we're needed. The metaphoric imagery really brought to life the concept of bittersweet moments. Enjoyable work overall. Check out some of my poems, might find some you like. Peace.
