Where once brigades of light did light,
The darkest times of darkest night,
Teardrop candles, remain abreast,
In dust, the candelabra rest.

Where light and music made a ball
And phantoms danced upon the wall,
And where whispers behind a fan,
Gave mention of a courtesan.

Where dreams gave birth to fantasy,
Desires to sensibility,
A world of boldness, care and dare,
A time of time beyond compare.

In dust, the candelabras rest,
Each teardropped candle, cold abreast.
Time's once sweet morrow, dried e'er more:
I rise in sorrow, close the door.

Ah could I forget this one? It inspired a poem from me as I recall:

The Forgotten Candelabra

Wherein the candelabra rests
Once bright, now marred by rust
The door shut tight, the room sealed up
Left to gather dust
The candles long have been put out
The dreams have faded too
Where once we danced are memories
Left of me and you
The ghosts of us, they haunt the room
Where time and space reside
And though I stand outside the door
My heart was left inside

Simply lovely, my friend and one of my favorites of all times of yours  

To love means never to be afraid of the windstorms of life: should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings. ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Softly - ever so softly
you play music that makes my heart sing.
Stirringly lovely, my friend.
Love you
