~*Raindrops Of Remember*~

Parched lips so often thirsting for your kiss
Recall a time entangled in such bliss
This arid heart sustained with reminisce
Once filled with love now lost in vast abyss

Though oceans of our hearts we've sailed before
No longer will we reach love's peaceful shore
The captain of my humble ship no more
I lived for nothing more than your adore

We crossed the bridge of love and paid the toll
Now memories are all that will console
Such desolation reigns within my soul
I pray the rains will come and make me whole

Now here I stand, heart cleansed of all regret
These raindrops of remember ne'er forget

~vlraynes

"...until you have read the verse on his heart,
you have not truly met the poet.

"Now here I stand, heart cleansed of all regret
These raindrops of remember ne'er forget"

Once the regret is gone, the remembered song continues for a long long time to come, The regret has now turned to caution. Use it wisely. Hugs... Your a wonderful poet.

Treasure every moment that you have!
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present!!

Vicky,

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown
