Echo Of My Heart - Poem by Bonnie Collins

Each and every night we would
meet at the lighthouse of love

We would hold each other till
the early morning hours and pray
god would give us just one more moment

On the cliff's edge is where we both
had to walk different ways, each knowing
the other would walk alone with only
the distant sounds of the empty waves
crashing into the rocks below

Oh its been so many many nights since
the nightly trip to the lighthouse, but the
memory that is witheld in the halls of its
harbor will remain an echo of my heart......

    I was just reading your poem 'Echo of my Heart' and it is truly beautiful. The cliff edge and the lighthouse of love evoke a dramatic mood. I loved it. I wondered if you would like to read a couple of my poems the first using echo called 'Fading Echo' about my son when a teenager who like most teenagers was very distant at that time. Also my poem 'Fountain of Grief' as that is the loss of someone also as you went through. I would love to share them with you and see what you think.
    Thanks and God Bless Karin Anderson

    This poem is astounding. It seems like there is only half a metaphor in the knowledge of walking away from one another, the presence of that lonely parting, and yet that only leaves the poem more open and more human. (Report) Reply

    The mellifluously smoothe flow of this poem, is virtually tranquilizing....Beautiful mastery of ambiance your select choice of vernacular, places the reader in that your echo....and within its aural dance.Excellent Work, lass!
