In Fading Light

In fading light I see you,
Your touch no longer there.
Your heart still throbs beside me,
But no more your silken hair.,

Your morning’s breath is frozen,
No longer soothes the air,
But there you are beside me 
And I know that still you care.

Forever in the sunrise
I’ll clutch the cross you bear,
Awaiting  till the sun dies
That death we soon will share.

  1. You have used this prompt ‘ fading light’ in such a beautiful and ethereal way.
    Through your poem we feel a deep love for someone who is no longer there – yet there.
