Last letter to my Beloved

Oh beloved of mine,

Soon time shall no longer be a companion of ours, as the journey ends, our destination remains unclear. You would always say my words are my gift, so I leave these for you; the love poem, I never quite expressed. I remember my first glance, as you sat all alone. Not a cloud in subtle sapphire horizons, yet your forlorn face, only saw overcast skies, as rain poured through your eyes, onto your somber smile. It was the first day I prayed to God, pleading for a rainbow to brighten your day. But then I wonder if you were the treasure, waiting for me at the end. We became passengers on the pilgrimage of love, composing symphonies our hearts had never felt. Pledges and promises set the foundations of our love story, with chapters of smiles, tears, fears, kisses and near misses. I had never noticed the stars, nor was I ever a poet, till the day my soul inhaled your passionate spirit. How blessed was I, to have shared devoted lyrics. Although the music has ended, our songs breathe for eternity. As I ponder, questioning why, about this and that, things I should have said - things I should have done, but It's too late, as darkness and silence will soon arrive, accompanying deep sighs, lost within empty air. These are my last words for you, my precious diamond, you will always sparkle for me, even after our last goodbye.
Silent One 9 December 2018 A fictional poem. Example for the Last Letter to my Beloved contest.

    I would only hope that on the eve of my final departure, I would receive a gift such as this Silent One. The phrasing is gorgeous and the depth incalculable. I agree, certainly one of your very best!!!

    Can anything be beautiful than this? If yes then only you can write a better poem than this, it is simply beautiful and like always a fav for me,

    Is this about death or people departing? You leave it open for people to put their own interpretations. a reason or justification given for an action or belief is entirely up to the reader. Reminds me of a movie 'A Star is Born', in which Lady Gaga sings a beautiful emotional song 'I'll never love again'. Personally I would have preferred that song for this amazing emotional poem of yours, but that's just me. A personal fave Si, as usual you set the bar high....Maria hugs

    Although the music has ended, our songs breathe for eternity. That is just so beautiful! As always… You set the bar extremely high.

    What a beautiful song and what lovely words. Your heart is so tender S.O. it shows in every poem you write, Have a wonderful evening.

    S.O...what a riveting though tender expression of love beyond time...'passengers on the pilgrimage ' really got me... how can anyone outdo this?.. huggs

    Hi Silent One, What a magnificent work of art! Your soul speaks to your being which in turn writes a perfect love poem! Well done Silent One, this is at the top of my fav. list. Best wishes, Jennifer
  1. Date: 12/9/2018 1:23:00 PM've done it again, ZZ. The beauty and sadness of this poem hits me down deep where I store those same feelings...and I'm sure many can relate to this one. There is almost always that "one who got away" that is "always on my/our mind". FAVED....

    Fictional for you, perhaps, S O, but probably not for someone else. A very lovely piece. I especially like the idea of "time being a companion".

    Beautifully expressed, S-1. Love changes how we look, what we see, which paths to take, how our hearts beat. Your poem leaves us wondering about the ending... Regards // paul

    I haven't seen your contest posting yet, but this touching verse stands on its own as a genuine expression of love. Very beautiful, Silent One. Inspiration comes in many forms and from many places. True love seems to provide some of the best inspiration. Hugs, Carolyn

    A very emotional write S.O., I can imagine the scene as the person reads it, a very heartbteaking one. Tom.

    Silent, a very tender write although fictional, you captured the essence of what you want in your contest well done and I love your choice of music too !

    Your tender poem beautifully expresses the feelings of a great love with the depth and breadth of its gifts and its regrets. Poignant poetry, Silent One. Warmest wishes always my inspiring friend.. ~Susan

    You capture every tender emotion of the heart. Longing- sadness, that sweet ache of love. Beauty and romance. Departure. Even being fictional, this feels so real. ~ Brandy

    Oh this is beautiful. I also, thought it was real. It is written so well. :)
  1. Date: 12/9/2018 7:55:00 AM

    You had me convinced this was real till I read the footnote. So many emotions arose as I read this poem..haven't seen your contest yet..but you already won with this example.
  1. Date: 12/9/2018 6:56:00 AM

    WoW! Silent this is such a sad yet beautiful write. Fictional or not I felt every word and line of this well written piece. It conveyed that emotion of one getting a final letter from their beloved. Excellent example for your contest. Nice song as well:-) Alexis

    There's a clarity to your words...refreshing to the spirit...I guess it not the theme nor the style of write that gives it life...but rather its transparency...Merry Christmas to you SO...
