Unwelcomed Silence - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

In the long silence of night fall
I urge my heart not to cry
As I push aside the haunting
Yesterdays shared by you and I...
I cautioned the wind,
Do not whisper his name,
And then I pray to be strong
To laugh again, when morning light
Comes and caresses my heart.

    Very beautiful in its expression. Your poems always convey so much meaning with just the right words. I don't think we can erase the past, either the good or the bad. Even forgiveness of the wrong we have dealt does not take care of our ever forgetting it. We must always live with it. It is like a weight that we always drag around with us. That being said, a new day does give us a new opportunity to live life in a different way handing us new hope and the promise of something good to be accomplished. (Report)Reply
