Gratitude

Such an elixir
fragrances mingled with your being
creating a heady mixture of
space and movement through
the moment.

I drink in the images
like a sip of water
savoring its feel as I let it slowly slide.
Tantalising.
Sometimes a pain that’s so exquisite
I wish to tarry there a while
on that tip-toe pirouette.

The music box brings it
all sweeping back in
overwhelming tides.

If asked
I am always ‘fine’
except
(…Except)
If you could read
between the lines
you’d know
the beginning of
the maze
isn’t always at
the beginning.

You will always be
in windows on the water
ageless and free
beyond a horizon of dreams
in my beloved soft-fall rain
of another time.

And I…
I am so grateful for those memories
of that love forever, mine.

There are so many things I’m thankful for but most of all, I’m thankful for the gift of sharing….love.

  4. This is a beautiful poem. No matter what, one can always be grateful for the memories.

    These are beautiful lines:

    You will always be
    in windows on the water
    ageless and free
    beyond a horizon of dreams
    in my beloved soft-fall rain
    of another time.

    I ‘hear’ them too; and I also understand always being ‘fine.’ Sometimes it’s easier that way.

  5. Oh my goodness, this is one of the most beautiful poems of love, memory and gratitude that I have ever read. “Grateful for those memories of that love forever, mine.” Wow.

  6. This is exquisite, Bren. Such a beautifully written piece to tell of the depth of love. I especially like “fragrances mingled with your being”. Awesome!
