We Walked The Night Sands, Moon Shining Down

We Walked The Night Sands, Moon Shining Down

Walking the white sands by the windy sea
Lost in my deep thoughts of love, you and me
Nights in private, locked in long held embrace
In hearts glow, our most cherished hidden place

I walked flowing hills, where we once danced
Waded flowering meadows, where we romanced
Sun and blue sky both reminded me of you
If only, once again blessed, we could do

We journeyed into Nature and love's bliss
O' how that time, I now so sorely miss
We lost our way, coming storm tore us apart
I could not forgive, when you broke my heart

We walked the night sands, moon shining down
I still see you, in your white flowing gown

A beautifully sad write Robert, hard to believe you wrote it over 40 years ago! Look how well it's doing on the top 100, still is relevant after all these years!

Now when I read your poems, I try o guess before the end, an one or a new one, and I can never guess. This is another beautiful sonnet.

Arthur my friend, these old poems are not my best work--as that bulk of poems was burned decades ago by a vindictive ex-wife that stole them to burn. I have at least a hundred poems from long ago, that I will never openly show.

Thank you Jan. When written from a broken heart, often the resulting poem touches others. I look back at the night I wrote it and remember the pain of knowing -- it would never again be..
