In My Mind Poem by Valerie Dohren

In My Mind

Rating: 5.0

In my mind
I trace your smile with my fingers
trying to imprint
the contours of your lips
on my memory.

In my mind
I listen for the sound of your voice
whispering to me
through the silence

and in my mind
I seek your silhouette
see it drifting like a phantom
in the darkness
recapturing you.

and yet -

there are only shadows

gentle shadows
imprinted on my memory …

in my mind.

Feelings in the poem are deeper than I can imagine particularly when memories are becoming shadows. Nice poem.

A lovely detailing of the loved one whose memory can never be erased. True love never dies, it remains alive in the memories......... very nicely penned. You may read my poem To meet my love

artistic poem, a feast to senses in the attempt of recapturing the lost one, but not really lost! ! !

Sweet memories of a loved one are never lost. They are always engraved in our hearts, mind and soul. Capturing them from time to time brings us sweet joy intermingled with a touch of sadness. But still we are sustained. Beautifully written. I have a poem titled A Beautiful Flower that will continue to lift your spirits. Happy New Year.

The gentle shadows live on in us, through us. We can not grasp them, we cannot hold them, we are not sure they are real but deep inside we know they are as real as the light of the sun, the sound of the wind, the taste of love. Somehow, love never dies and here you manage to eternalise it through this superb poetry. Beautiful, touching, moving the soul of the reader, moving the world a bit forward.
