Love after Love…

Love after Love

When the flame has swallowed the wax

When the candle is no more

Then you will see your love waiting

In green fields by golden gates

Castle walls that shine like mirrors polished

Your journey will not be taken

On swift straight roads

It will be as if you walk through brambles thorns

Harsh winter winds, flame will not warm your bones

Your life will be tested, the road steep

Your heart will not let love wither away

As you journey through the underworld

Your own hand will guide you

To where death has taken him

When you reach the darkest part of your journey

When you think the end cannot be reached

Unclench your fist, light the candle you held for so long…

  1. I felt the emotion in this poem very wonderful having gone through so many physical challenges this past few years with my loved one. I thought of it as a good thing to do even if he is still here. Life often seems on the balance.
