How Shall I Remember You

How shall I remember you
as heavenward I gaze
through clouds of wispy ether
and shimm’ring misty haze.

How shall I recall your smile
through time’s fast moving pace -
remember then forever
your face, your gentle face.

What memories shall stir me
that we should never part –
what thoughts forever cherish
and hold within in my heart.

And shall the things that bound us
together through the years
remain to bring me solace
and ease away my fears.

Are they fixed within my heart
in this gold band I wear -
are they dancing in the wind
yes, shall I find them there.

I pray that they will never
be lost within the shade –
that they will shine forever
not fade, not ever fade.

How shall I remember you -
within the stars that gleam?
as an image in my mind -
a dream, just as a dream …..?

    I wish you the best, and I can tell you that your heart and your mind will remind you from time to time.

    As long as your remembrance goes right by making you live ahead you are a winner Valerie. Your fond memories will be passed on to many of us indirectly who hold human relations great above all. Remember him and let the lost love be returning to you in another form to give a solace.

    These are words that bring tears, though not to me, but to my heart bound in armour, well crafted and told with the pang of yearning, the idea of lost love immortal.

    Yes, that gentle face is etched in your memory! You have only happy memories to relate to him! So he will continue to blaze your path from an unknown corner! .... Absence makes the heart grow fonder... How true! ! A very moving write coming from the inner depth of your heart!
