Letters - Poem by Jesus James Llorico

'The twinkling stars are out tonight
as I sat alone in the dark
for in this moment of silence
a time to think of my past romance

the roses and leaves were too sweet then
as winds of youth in my chest again
her eyes and lips so nice to kiss
our world of love an ideal bliss

but when its time for her to walk away
to seek some work in another place
the skies turned darker in my face
like teardrops falling in a sunny day

I send letters every other day
describing details of love and pain
for things has never been the same
when she's gone and went her way

though hundreds of letters were sent
to fill my dreams and heart's content
the glow it give like an evening song
beneath the trees my love so strong

now it is only a memory
that our love ended silently
but there's one that kindles me dearly
that our love is wonderful and true.'
