Until Death do We Join
by Tom Watson

When the shadows arrive from down the road
And my filtered sun turns blood red color
I try all efforts to release your load;
Then you approach from behind my heart’s door.

For too long have your ashes filled the jar;
For too long was your soul imprisoned there,
Entombed, rejected, while I kept afar
Desperate loneliness left your crypt bare…

Now you do, what I failed to do for you;
You ride the shadows falling from death’s womb,
Seeking to bring me a new deadly view;
To instill my heart with joys of your tomb.

Now forever in your grip my heart cries
Forever within your death, my tears dry.


Tom

I am sorry Deborah for not acknowledging your kindness before...I try not to visit this forum too much these days...though I guess the need is greater than the feelings I should heed...hehehe...anyway, thanks so much.

:oops:
Almost a year since the last thoughtful comment and I missed them all...so sorry.

First, thanks to everyone who made this the poem of the week back then. As I said before, I visit this forum very infrequently.

Spazway, Duchess, :angel: Debbie, Nekot, silhouette's song and Nacona...thanks to all of you for your considerate comments... :hugs:

To instill my heart with joys of your tomb.

Now forever in your grip my heart cries
Forever within your death, my tears dry.
