EVEN AS TIME HAS PASSED

Who says this love, our love
Shall fade into the mists of time?
I lay my heart like a rainbow field before your feet
Walk with me into time
Into time beyond time

For even as the ages pass
Ours shall always be melodies
Like the sweet songs nestling in the olives,
- the honeyed tunes amid the hollies

Lie beside me in this grove,
Oh gentle love
Whisper to me
Fill the void in my soul
And calm the shrills amid the cold

Even as time has passed
Oh gentle dove
I will still lay my heart like a rainbow field before your feet
To walk, hand-in-hand, with me across the seasons
- Into immortality
- Into eternity

Good to see you here again,
I think that Wesley would like to see your Name
On a workshop list he has,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

What I love most about POETS is how they write SADNESS with SUNSHINE on their face, caption RAIN with FALLEN EMBERS and paint TEARS using the colours of WATERFALLS:lol

Hello WG,
A lovely writing,
I just thought that dropping the words between the brackets would make it more powerful. Just thoughts
you can take or leave as you see appropriate.
Thanks for sharing.

I do have a poem with the same theme but it is nowhere as good as this one. Thank you for sharing this lovely piece with us. This will be a good reference for me as I try to improve on my writing skills;)

Alid, what I love most about neopoet is the platform it has made available for members to learn from one another's works. (I do more reading at neopoet than write.lol. learning from the masters)
thanks for the read again.

I find this poem to be wistful and beautiful. The only thing that I'd suggest is to find some alternates for using "time" so much. As a sample for alternate words in stanza 1, line 2 you could use memories instead yet still not affect what you're conveying. Or stanza 4, line 1 you could say even as the years have passed. Or you can just tell me to keep my opinions to myself lol.............stan

you are right Jess. repetition in this poem makes a bit boring. and yes, your opinions do count. a lot. I always like to empty my cup. lol
bless

respects.
