Like a frost spread across valleys silent and dreary,
ever my longing lost in shimmers of shadow & wind
And days bled into years, the seas became deserts
But thoughts of thee would not perish
Thru memories untamed I staggered far and long;
upon solemn nights lit by the torch of your soul
O’ how deep I miss your fragrant cheer ..
Of warm evenings shared across Lake’s reverie,
watching horizons journey into Autumn’s dream
— wherest our hearts once bloomed a fabled sky
Those passions shared will forsake me not
Lest the Moon would bestow solace upon my ache:
I will lay marooned, haunted by thy seraphic-figure,
Or the ever fleeting caress of your gaze ...
So my soul shall yield to this mythic abyss;  –
as I peer from my carriage to Nirvana
And thou away, from my arms, the Sun weeps
Unto eternity—my dear beloved, we are entwined
Forever our footprints cast in golden firmament
A kiss not forgotten in a ballet of light softly falling
I now bear the wanton burden of the stars —
A jewel in the mist; watching thee, forever calling

bereft of a great man)

This is such a warm poem and a beautiful tribute to your friend. After a long time I came across to such a fine taste of metaphors used in the poem. and it feels so good inside as you read between the tenderness and integrity of the words :)

What an awesome way to commemorate someone. Very well written and brings a tear to my eye..

This may be my hopeless romantic side talking but you should do more romance ones and less gothic and dark ones ;)

Honestly Arthur, he would be proud of this poem. Honestly he would...

I really have nothing to say other than a clap of appraisal for this poem, and a pat in the back for you. I'm so sorry for her loss. Its a painful ordeal and one wherein we all have to chip in and take care of those who matter most.

Sending prayers her way. Till then, keep writing.
