One more day

Let’s try a little serious shall we…

Okay so I piss about a bit with my blog I realise. If my poems had a ‘Eeeeuuuwww button’ then I am pretty sure it would get pressed more than my likes. I was challenged by Roda – I think that’s what happened – to try a happy ending or two so for this week I will have a crack at a few more pleasant subjects.

At Days close he waits content

to say goodbye and drift to night

and in those moments years rolled back

warm smiles and joy and eyes shine bright

Her warm embrace and tender kiss

and babies cries and laughter sweet

when blankets laid across his knees

worn eyes do close and visions greet

First words, first steps, first dates first kiss

long days dark nights but then

he sees her face and hears her voice

and love’s restored again

And as he slips to dark and rest

a life well lived he sees

of family, love and heart and hearth

life passing like the breeze

And in that moment vivid, clear

old lips whisper and say

each day a treasure I received

farewell, on this last day

  1. It is lovely but I have to wonder just how painful errr difficult errr odd errr different it was for you to write about such heartwarming things. There really should be a strike-through option for comments…

  2. I’ll look forward to them – I got behind in Reader over the weekend … finally a little nice weather here in SE Michigan and I escaped to the Park for two nice long walks and picture-taking expeditions. Now three days of rain, but at least it is not snow thankfully. We’ve had a brutal Winter.
