A LOVE LIFE

Thania Sayne leans on the headstone of her husband 
 day before their wedding anniversary on 16 Oct 2013 


GRIEVING LOVE

Before, during,
after fame
did love's flame
keep on burning,
never adjourning?

once I,

loved by lovely artist
who traveled every place
on our globe,
dancing
on her toes

now....

oh! I miss her face
god, I miss her so...
not secret our love,
nor for show

remember we,

strong trees?
side-by-side,
tall we stood,
roots weaved
but never tied?

and I took leave
and died?
oh! hurting heart,
you cried.

we met--before fame.
even during, next--
how persistently flame
continued to burn.

truest of loves
has no adjourn...

our one anticipation
to meet, greet,
on street or shore

 "quoth the Raven,
'Nevermore!'"*
our enscription:
"forevermore"

  1. sad, to lose your love...
    no matter the reason, to be robbed of what time you had together.
    to miss out on so much.

    hope you are doing well my friend.

    1. Just a po-em, Brian. But thanks! Doing GREAT! And from your writes, it is obvious that you are treating life, rather than the opposite. Good!

  8. Powerful picture, heartbreaking really. Powerful words. Does the idea of love grow in the distance? I wonder. Nothing to ruin that image, it is frozen in time.
