Dorothy (Alves) Holmes Poems
The Forever Of You
The forever of you
Is in between all I do...
In a passing field of flowers
In the morning sky,
You are to me, a soft
You are ever in my thoughts;
Oh! the clamor that invades
The empty spaces
When we are apart.
My mind, thrashing about, fighting the reality
That you are no longer here.
My world, so full of your absence,
Our house, wasting away in quiet despair.
A table setting for one now, if at all;
No loathsome smell of magic shave.
No sweet aroma of your cologne.
Our half empty bed, and no love sounds.
Yesterday I reached out for you, forgetting.
