The Day Is Done

(For my dear husband, who passed away
on 4 September 2013) .


All flames shall dim, all books shall close
Petals fall from the dying rose
The actor makes his final bow
The curtain falls, its over now

With no more words and no more sighs
We`ve spoken now our last goodbyes
The time has come, the end of this
From trembling lips, a final kiss

Eclipsed is now the coming dawn
From which another night is born
For shadows move across the earth
Another death, another birth

As darkness clouds the closing day
Your quiet heart in silence lay
After the fading of the sun
Last breath taken - the day is done


(Little yellow flowers
Dancing in the breeze
Little yellow flowers
Huddled round the trees
Little yellow flowers
Seemed to know my pain
Little yellow flowers
In my mem`ry will remain)

    He is not gone far as you think
    When silence and solitude calls
    You will find him stand and wink
    In the corridors of your mind standing tall.........

    The day is done but love and memories still remains. I felt your
    deeply emotional write but I also feel a ray of bright hope for you.
    It may be dark now but the light will conquer it. You will overcome!
    A heartfelt write.

    Treasured memories will always be with you Val.

    Please remember all the pleasant times you had together. Your lines in parenthesis refer to yellow flowers. Please read my poem 'Five Yellow Butterflies' as they fly away. Thank you.

  • John Brown (9/27/2013 2:41:00 PM)

    Another beautiful poem Val. I don't know what else to say.

  • Juan Olivarez (9/27/2013 11:02:00 AM)

    A wonderful tribute to your loved one. God bless.

  • Danny Draper (9/25/2013 3:17:00 AM)

    Dear Valerie, my apologies for coming late to your requiem piece. This apparently most stoic and beautiful tribute is a finely crafted and special poem. My thoughts are with you.

  • Smoky Hoss (9/21/2013 8:36:00 AM)

    Surely one of the finest tributes ever penned; beautiful.
