A Departed Lover Poem by Uriah Hamilton

A Departed Lover

Rating: 5.0

I no longer recognize
The flowers of summer youth
That bloomed in the dawn of my innocence
When love was like sunlight
Gleaming on dewy petals.

Cherished kisses are forever gone
Like fading memories
That sink into the soft soil
Of freshly dug graves.

A departed lover
Never returns
But her spirit lingers
In ghost shadows
That consume me.

Ouch! This hurts, because it is so true to the days of our lives. she knows the feeling far too well, all we can hope for is a contentment in silver linings Uriah! Smiling because I have to, Tai
