           No retrocede

The day to me just mute and bare,
Within the confines of my stare.
And though the sun smiles in gay,
It seems to me a dreary day.

She has left on a mercy grace,            
On a kindness to emplace.
Yet It shrouds me in distress,
Without an unction of repress.

I can't suppress the wake of sorrow
Or future launch of lonely morrow.
Or feel without a twinge of quell,
The lonely time that I must dwell.

It aches me deep, her fly away,
I would her here each precious day.
She is my shoal my anchor pole.
She is the other half my soul.

Although a temporary deed,
For time, there is no retrocede.

It's quite hard to be alone in the nest, but you express it beautifully, as always. I wouldn't have missed this. You just posted it after my bedtime
Love ya,

Devina,
I thank you much your elegant touch,
Your helpful and your beautiful.
And hope someday to do as much,
For a doleful soul so graceful.

Tho soulmate doth part, be not despaired
for in her return, you will be paired
again with your angel, your life
may she forever and ever be your loving wife.

Beautiful, as always.

There is not much more to say
although I have no sun that shines so gay
More like a white and cloudy sky
A well done poem.. and that is why
You see me here down below
hoping she's back soon and will never go
But without she's gone away
would your words find such nice array?
I enjoyed the piece like a sunday drive
Because, I also miss my wife

Well done Sy, but whom I'm telling here  


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

I agree! If you didn't feel the pain of missing her you wouldn't have gifted us with this lovely poem! So sweet!

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Hi Seymour,

I was taken into this poem to the end as it told it woe so wonderfully.  Such a moment.

It aches me deep, her fly away,
I would her here each precious day.
She is my shoal my anchor pole.

Seymour, another beautiful one!
Your wordplay baffles me at times!
But that's the sign of a truly, intricate writer.
