Love and Loss

I ponder my life
All the hopes and the heartbreaks
With you by my side

Tears come easily
As those great years slip away
Heave away my soul

Joy springs back to prove
Children validate our love
Constant is my heart

  1. Lovely poem. You have a way with poems about love. I had to reread it in order to find the 3WW words.

  3. It sounds like the perfect fulfillment. I like the pleasant ending, your offspring carrying it on and the consistent beating of your hearts. Lovely.

  4. Makes me think of someone near the end of their life, thinking back to all the good, all the bad, and realizing it was a good life :)

  7. When you write poems..i feel the essence of your other stories refined and whittled to the core..brilliantly..

  8. Very nicely done, and I am in total agreement with the sentiment.

    Almost the exact opposite of my entry, which, BTW, is pure fiction.

    Cheers!
