Same Time, Next Life

The days are short, the hours are few
Iíve not much time for loving you
We met upon the sunset hour
And witnessed love begin to flower

The body has grown ill and weak
The mind too fragile dreams to seek
But hearts are beating ecstacy
In rhythms of the pounding sea

Love has come to us too late
A loverís loss, a wicked fate
But time will bury all the strife
Iíll meet you here same time, next life

Just stand upon the ocean pier
The lovliest evening of the year
Against the red of sunset sky
A soul that loved but did not die

Your face will not appear the same
And I wonít even know your name
But this I swear to be the true
Within my heart Iíll know itís you

Weíll be as one, as man and wife
Just meet me here same time, next life

Elizabeth Santos

Lizzie~
This is one of the most beautiful things
I've seen you do.  
What a wonderful gesture for a friend.

Your heart overflows with loving thoughts.
I can't begin to let you know how this touched me.  
Perhaps there is a 'pier' in all our lives,
where we stand waiting for that recognition
to dawn.  
Love you
~*Marge*~

Denise,
Thank you for the WOW.

vandana, Thanks for all the exclamation marks. Glad you liked it

Martie,
I wrote this for the friend of a very dear friend, but I'm glad it also touched you.

Marge,
You put more exuberance and love into your responses than most put into their poetry.
You are a dear, and I'm glad you liked this
Thank you

Liz

Elizabeth,
   This was very good, especially the last two lines. I love repeating lines when they are integral to the theme of a piece of work.

Weíll be as one, as man and wife
Just meet me here same time, next life

Good work!

"A soul that loved but did not die"

This line touched me so acutely, Liz. The poem is beautiful. Would that we could each hold this sentiment in our heart. Thank you for sharing this here.
