So Still The Night - Poem by ANDREW BLAKEMORE

So still the night
The stars are bright
Up in the evening sky,
Alone I stare
Through twilight air
And watch the night go by,
Above the trees
Are memories
Of all I left behind,
So far away
My heart does stay
You never leave my mind.
I shed a tear
For you my dear
That I miss so much,
Yet in my dream
You always seem
To be in constant touch,
So still I wait
And contemplate
On all the love I knew,
As night time goes
My sweetest rose
Will turn the sky to blue.

    There is nothing still about your poems Andrew they are moving and so alive. this is so very sweet, but certainly not in a sickly way at all.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    An evocative poem of love, loss and longing that reflects the poets thoughts in amongst the changing hues of the sky. Lovely flow to this Andrew. j. (Report) Reply
