Anamnesis


I have spent many a lonely and idle hour
Gazing wistfully at this glistering flame
And as softly as the winds whisper to the flowers
Dost mine heart yet whisper your name

Darling, how deeply I have loved you
Since that first day love shined in thine eyes
For an eternity wilt I ever remain true
Though thy love for me now dies

I know not how I shall bear this pain
As you no longer hold me within thine heart
And though my wish be both futile and vain
I still long to be whither thou art

You wert mine Heaven on Earth
My sun rose in the day that was you
Shining bright in my lost soul's rebirth
To now set, slowly fading from view

Sometimes I do doubt and I ponder
Wondering if you ever didst truly love me
I mourn all of the passions I squandered
On such a heartless man as thee

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
