Changes


I swam within the depths of you,
The waters warm and calm.
The currents soft, a gentle flow,
protected from all harm.

You smiled at me, a gentle breeze,
Caressed my troubled soul.
One gaze from your, soft, caring eyes,
Made what was broken, whole.

A touch from slender fingers,
Would set my heart afire.
A kiss from tender perfumed lips,
Would stimulate desire.

Winter held no power,
To chill the love that burned.
Your voice, a message on the wind,
Would tell of spring, returned.

I thought a love, that burned so bright,
could never pass away.
Yet here I sit, in sadness, cloaked,
Alone, bereft, today.

    Changes fast too doesn't it? Beautiful words strung together to describe a horrible feeling at the end. I particularly enjoyed this verse:

    Winter held no power,
    To chill the love that burned.
    Your voice, a message on the wind,
    Would tell of spring, returned. (Report) Reply

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
