Magic Link - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

Oh where, oh where has our love gone?
a love we shared, a love that shone
and made us happy through each day
just like a bird, it has flown away.

I cannot see and I cannot think
now we have lost that magic link,
the link that kept us heart to heart
has broken ~ tearing us apart.

I know not how, I know not why
you left, and there was no goodbye.
I thought your tender love for me
would last beyond eternity.

You will return in time I'm sure
and we will be as we were before.
The magic link will shine again
and we will hear our love refrain.

But come not back in winter snow
when trees are bare and cold winds blow.
Just come to me in early spring
as tulips bloom and skylarks sing.

    The sorrow of losing the invisible magic link between lovers wonderfully depicted along with the hope of it's resurfacing just like paradise lost and paradise regained. (Report)Reply

    So sad.... when the lovers part ways. But there is a ray of hope towards the end and that is where the real beauty of this poem lies. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks, Joyce. (Report)Reply

    Nicely done, Joyce. Congratulations on having it selected as poem of the day! I especially like the last verse:
    But come not back in winter snow
    when trees are bare and cold winds blow.
    Just come to me in early spring
    as tulips bloom and skylarks sing.

    'But come not back in winter snow
    when trees are bare and cold winds blow.
    Just come to me in early spring
    as tulips bloom and skylarks sing.'

    Very beautiful lines.. Love is for every seasons, but I guess you used 'winter' as a metaphor for your state of the mind.. Your love must come back when your mind is fresh and not when you are in a state of pain, or going through a rough patch.. While many people, in their poetry, equate the one they love with their well being entirely, you present a more realistic yet Romantic perspective on love..

    Thank you for sharing Joyce..
