Final Song


Hush my love, don’t fret and fuss -
now there’s just the two of us.

We’ll dream together, here below
the darkened sky,
the moon’s soft glow,

as we recall the time, now passed,
before there was a shadow cast
upon the world that once we knew,
when all was well for me and you.

Let’s gaze into the mirror long,
to see ourselves, both sure and strong -
there’s naught to fear, there’s nothing wrong -

and we will sing our final song.

    A final song but not a final love! The singing of a beautiful love song ads
    fuel to the fire that is already burning with love notes. The fire of love is not
    easily extinguished by words nor by songs. A beautiful write again Val. (Report) Reply

    Casting of the shadow - a subtle way to bring in the unpleasant - and then to look in the mirror. Beautiful poem of great depth of feelings. (Report) Reply
