Altar of Remembrance

All things you are to me I now render unto our altar of remembrance…

No long list this of platitudes and love words written idly…

Our love deserves a solemn, sublime space here in the domains of our souls…

Reach gentle fingers to your heart and watch the wispy thoughts of yesterday rise softly before you…

With caressing fingers hold the moments that filled us with memories for the ‘morrow…

Smile with dreamy eyes the awkward delivery of our first kiss…

Ah, the wafting scent of the fragrances we sprayed on our bodies…

And the blushes we could not hide during the early blooming of our love…

The tedious nourishing of those magical moments when our bodies touched in the night…

The balladeers and violins of enchanting moments at our favorite bistros…

So many endearments…and I must leave you now with a misty good-bye…

    Nothing funny to say about that poem, Billy Ray. So intimate and personal, I wondered if you meant to push the send button. Kinda like my first love letter that I dropped into the mail box, then reached back trying to fish it out (With some readers, I’d have to explain what a mailbox was.) Some beautiful words there, BR, well-blended.

    I’ve some catching up to do. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t been able to visit with my favorite writers in websville. BTW, I tried something new, you might be interested in:

  5. Brilliant! I want your ‘Uniqueness’ NOW! One of the best essays I’ve read, good friend…some ‘envy’ comes with this comment! ♥ Brilliant, I say,, because the tie-in was heart-rending – ‘Stephen Hawking’ – ‘Schuler’s Hour of Power’ – the unforgettable ‘James’! Loved it!
