Each Moment Precious

And there it rests against the wall,
the chair that last night's passion held
and there the bed where they did hold
So closely that they seemed to weld.

But now so empty does it seem,
this room where hearts aflame did touch,
where whispered words in dark were spent.
Oh how he misses her so much.

He traced her form in their embrace
and found he could not leave her eyes,
as gently did he kiss her face,
while listening to her sweet sighs.

So short their time within the night.
each moment precious and so few
and each a treasure for the heart.
Such little time, so much to do.

As night moved closer to the day,
she had to leave the nest they'd kept.
They talked until it almost light
and neither one of them had slept.

He slides beneath the sheets to sleep,
breathes in the scent she left behind,
and closes eyes to once again,
be with her loveliness in mind.

MichaelA~
My stars, this is beautiful.
This poem has the essence of romantic notions
honed to perfection.
*Sighing-deeply*
Just lovely.

Marge,

Thank you for the "honed." That was nice to hear. It is so good to hear from you. I've finally managed to get my password working here and was able to update my profile with my new e-mail address and URL to my web site.
Again, thank you. I've missed you much. :-)

Michael~
Those that read your work can't help but
walk away knowing they have read a beautiful
poem...it's like walking through the hearts
of the ones you speak of...excellent writing
with a huge **Sigh** at the end~
