The Love That Makes Everything Right - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Conversing in starlight
In a night of a thousand dreams,
We were laughing a midnight
Watching the headlights flicker by
Like drunken fireflies.

I'm so happy to see you,
I find such consolation
In the way you smile,
Your eyes are my home
Whenever I'm lonely.

When you were a young girl,
You played piano and sang
As sunlight shone through the window
Of your Saturday room
And settled on purple flowers.

Everyday I fall in love
Like when we were children
Walking the sweet sidewalk
In front of Mrs. O'Brian's Bakery
In the afternoon after school.

One day the world will exist
Long after we've parted
With your lingering perfume
And our final kiss,

But I know we made everything better
For our moment in this place.

    I think the strength and power of this poem is that it flows directly from your heart and so has a way of stirring nostalgia in the readers own. For me it conjures a pastel coloured scene of sweet memory and delicate feeling. In all my flakey travels through PoemHunter I have never stumbled across a poet who is able to engage the reader in his experience so consistently. Your skill with language and your soulful sensiblity will ensure you a place alongside your mentor the great Ginsberg. (Report) Reply

    That longing to make everything right is always
    with us. A moment can be forever. I am
    touched by your nostalgic poem pictures.

    Warm regards,
