To The Memory Of Love - Poem by Dee Daffodil

Petals torn from faded roses,
Memories stored in jars.
Photographs with different poses,
To worship from afar.

Love has gone from her heart,
Sadness fills his soul.
What of the vow to never part?
To live two lives, as a whole?

Emptiness fills the days,
Loneliness the nights.
Through teary eyes filled with haze,
She remembers all their fights.

What of the love they shared?
Could it be it's only hiding?
Or has it simply disappeared,
from lack of simple trying?

It seems a waste, an awful shame,
That love should part,
Just as it came...
With very little effort.

Let's raise a glass-
To the memory of love.

    This one is very true.The memories remain sweeter, stronger when you lose your love when you are both young and very much in love. (Report) Reply

    Well crafted and very evocative. A tidy summing-up of all the pains that only love can bring.
    Nice work.

    Dee, I like this third poem much better than the other two. It seems a lot more mature, with a much deeper line of feeling. There are a couple commas out of place that break thoughts when they shouldn be broken, but otherwise, I like the deep feeling shown here. Get that pen and get have a talent here that is well worth working on....looking for more later! (Report) Reply
