When Evening Shadows Fall
~*Marge Tindal*~

When shadows of the night
caress the sun goodbye
then and only then
will I let down and cry
For in the light of day
I see your memory clear
but in the solitude of night
I've no one to hold me near

No one to whisper
night-nothings in my ear
telling me that they love me
without your precious self here
Not one moment of deep sleep
shall close lids of sorrows eye
washed away with loves tear
at our very last goodbye

Just a moment of joy
clings to my longing heart
in the bright light of the day
but in evening it quickly departs
That you loved me in the meadow
awash with sunlight that day
is enough for me to retreat
to the coming light of day

When the morning breaks
I shall hope again
that I've got what it takes to face
the evening shadows from within

Martie~
Oh, don't cry sweetie.  
I'm glad you liked the sentimentality in it.

Mariee~
Thank you for a sweet reply.

Balladeer~
I always know I've done it right
when you see my 'heart' in it.
Thank you, my sweet friend.

PoetdeVine~
At some time I'm sure we've all felt
the 'shadows' .... thanks for the reply.

James~
Written from a spirit that felt
the call of the hearts of others.
Thank you, my friend.

Nice poem, Marge... ! Isn't it amazing, how we can be so brave to face the day- and nighttime falls, and we feel the emptiness even more!?

Marge~
This was soo sad, I could see the heartbreak in it and feel the depth of the despair once the sun went down and night appeared.
Beautiful piece.  
Tracie~

Marge,
I have never heard any piece that came closer to the feeling of facing the night alone. Very well done. Thank you for sharing.

Marge,

last year my uncle died.  I went to Arizona for the funeral.  The had been married in 1942.  My aunt said time and time again that the days are okay, she keeps busy with her friends.  

But at night, the quiet, the emptiness is inescapable.  The spot on the bed where he laid next to her all those years, vacant and cold.

Made me think long and hard about love like that.  So many rewards, but so much loss.

Lovely poem.  Thanks for sharing this with us.

Corinne

Yes, the loss is so hard when it's remembered in the still of the night.
Thank you for sharing that story with me.
