You Found It Only By Chance - Poem by Agatha Eliza Laposi

The bitter mercury of life is washed away

as the last hours of night are cast aside,

and deep down, in your embrace, the light

mingles with the blight, reaching the dawn!

I cannot hold longer a minute rushing by

nor stop the, just keep in mind,

not all the feelings last for lifetime.

but you..well, you found it only by chance!

Could you retrace what you once lost

among quivering ashes of a fire long dead?

maybe only by chance-just for a while,

I will enjoy the warm sunrise of a smile!

    You Found It Only By Chance
    This poem of love describes love as a moment of chance.+++10

    In my A Hauntingly Beautiful Word, I define, and describe love more broadly.

    Very nice writing. Again, it has an old-fashioned feel to it. Must be written by an old soul. Well done. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    I hate when people comment on your poem just to tell you to read their poems too.
    Nice poem, tough it's a bit abstract for my liking.
