~*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.

Vicky, a very beautiful, though
heart-wrenching poem.

A beautiful sonnet, Vicky! I really enjoyed reading this.. I love the clensing power of rain, although it's flooding here! :P
But anyway.. you have my vote. I hope (If my poem gets in!) that ours will be side by side, my friend!

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.--Jesus Christ

Vicky; We have lost touch for a while and reading your glorious sonnet, brings your poetry right back to me...Hugs, Ellie

Your concluding rhyming couplet ties this sonnet up with a beautiful bow!--and it speaks volumes!

Warm hugs,
