Final Song


Hush my love, don’t fret and fuss -
now there’s just the two of us.

We’ll dream together, here below
the darkened sky,
the moon’s soft glow,

as we recall the time, now passed,
before there was a shadow cast
upon the world that once we knew,
when all was well for me and you.

Let’s gaze into the mirror long,
to see ourselves, both sure and strong -
there’s naught to fear, there’s nothing wrong -

and we will sing our final song.

    A final song but not a final love! The singing of a beautiful love song ads
    fuel to the fire that is already burning with love notes. The fire of love is not
    easily extinguished by words nor by songs. A beautiful write again Val. (Report) Reply

    Your wonderful poem made me wonder: Must we have said a farewell, to have the precious flower of eternal love? Thank you for share dear Valerie, another poem of yours to love! (Report) Reply

    Why should it be the final song? You can continue to sing, for music is the food of love!

    Your poem is delightful and strongly optimistic. Love is a power that helps us to stand tall and not fearing our last song, it stirs like any good poem. (Report) Reply

    So tender, , so bitter-sweet, so sad
    Only the very great poets can stir up this emotional tempest (Report) Reply

    .... in this togetherness of your own let the sweet song be sung and preceding that why don`t you whisper your sweet nothings into the ears of each other?
    Yet another fine Valerie write indeed! (Report) Reply

    Casting of the shadow - a subtle way to bring in the unpleasant - and then to look in the mirror. Beautiful poem of great depth of feelings. (Report) Reply

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
