Symbol of Love

Adornment of burnished gold,
reflecting back on lifelong dreams
Seen upon an outstretched hand,
symbol placed forever gleams
Cresting gem flickers with light,
transfixed look of continued gaze
Journey starts within the mist,
depicting scenes of cherished days


Falling tears from misted eyes,
wispy clouding of shadows cast
Memories sought often speak,
whispering echoes from the past
Spirit lives in mind and heart,
vows bestowed in altars aisle
Years were graced in clasp of hands,
beloved held closely all the while


Cuddled slumber nights content,
reveled embrace so tightly sealed
Taunting raptures serenade,
tending caress saw passions yield
Faltering heart never known,
faithful pledge folded to breast
Witnessed seasons thriving love,
sharing of lives was truly blessed


Hazy shades from teary eyes,
softly spoken the last goodbye
Lonely dwelling from within,
nightly content now taunts with sigh
In earthy bosom’s final bed,
silence surrounds your peaceful sleep
Satin chamber sealed with kiss,
caress will come from angels keep

A handful of words is really all my ramblings are, because I haven't a clue as to what I'm doing behind this keyboard, bishu. I just arrange some words on a page and hope for the best. Thank you for your support.
