The Distant Sounds Of Love - Poem by T.J. Daniels

In the distance
I hear the sounds of life.

But here

the loneliness
creeps in silently

like the bone chilling frost
of a late autumn night.

I still remember
the wonderful sounds of life.

The laughter of children
the whispers of love.

I remember
the warmth of love

long ago lost
like a pebble
tossed in the sea.

But in the distance
I can still hear the sounds of love.

But the loudest sounds
are the quiet sounds of lonely.

Like the deafening sound
of the wind tossed waves

on a long ago
deserted shore.


(1999)
