I Thought I Saw You

I thought I saw you moving in the shadows
Drifting through the silence of the night
How brightly shone your eyes that were upon me
A vision oh so beauteous to my sight

For though you are now gone and I am weeping
To spend my life without you by my side
I know that somewhere fixed within the darkness
Your light will shine forever as my guide

I’m reaching out, my darling, so to touch you
But you are just an image in my mind
And though I’ll never once more hear you breathing
Your heart with mine shall ever be entwined

I thought I saw you moving in the shadows
Along the bridge of death’s long road you passed
Shimmering in the dark there as a phantom
To find eternal peacefulness at last

And I shall linger here set deep in sorrow
Alone, in solitude, no more with you
Full knowing that, one day, we’ll be together
Again our love to shine forever true

    I am always grateful for the fleeting glimpses of the faces of those I have loved, and lost...be them, in truth, only seen with the eyes of my broken heart. Your poem is a lovely tribute, I offer my shared sympathy for your loss. PEACE

    And I shall linger here set deep in sorrow... Beautiful! . Well thought out and written with true emotions.

    You express your thoughts so vividly and effortlessly. A lovely and moving poem, I share your loss and certainly wish you all the best. Continue to be strong my friend.

    A very deep and moving write. Obviously the love that you shared
    echoes loudly in this poem. A beautiful rose was plucked from the
    garden and then cared for by God. Keep on looking up Val.
    I have a poem titled He Cares. I believe that it was written just for
    you. lol and regards.

    So many poems you have written about your true love, and now he's gone, as you continue to write even more beautiful verses in his honor, he must have been a true inspiration to your work. My condolences to you for your loss....

  • David Wood (10/1/2013 5:03:00 AM)

    Love is an unbroken chain
    that binds you until you meet again.

  • Amitava Sur (9/30/2013 2:26:00 PM)

    So nice expression of the loss of beloved - it touches the heart. A combination of love and agony - very well defined.

  • Tirupathi Chandrupatla (9/30/2013 11:49:00 AM)

    Your light will shine forever as my guide
    ...
    Again our love to shine forever true
    Feelings of the heart beautifully delivered. They definitely reach to whom they are intended.
