A Desert Life


As I watched the sunset in this land
And fading lights dims the desert sand
A time my memory seems so right

    This is such a poignant poem Jesus, touched my heart significantly. Yes, I too have lost my parents, and many other relatives whom I was close to. It is difficult to go on when they are a memory of yesterday, that you want to relive right now, again. Memories are always bittersweet when we no longer have the ones we love here on earth. Their images in our minds of good and happier times fill our hearts with joy, as tears spill from our eyes, because we can no longer live them on earth. Sorrow filling our hearts and minds with every moment we have lost in time. So touchingly sad, Jesus, yet a beautiful poem at the same time. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Lovely and melodious, your poem fondly speaks of a glorious time of youth, the warmth and longing of family. One always cherishes those times and our memory keeps them safe.
