Farewell to Tears

Love's sweet mementos
of a long-lost time
scatter rhyme
upon the grounds of summer.
Her kiss,
remembered past its rendered night,
stills floats a vision---
and I surrender.

My fingertips retrace her curves;
within my mind, I do observe
her flowing hair
and perfect smile---
returning there to bask awhile.

Though passion's notes
on moistened lips once hummed,
love succumbed
to summer's drought drawn withered.
A torn and shattered man
remained to write
of autumn's leaves
and love blown far from sight.

My eyes grow swollen, full of tears---
farewell to summer's yesteryear.
Fall's leaves break free
and so will I---
but not without this sad goodbye.

  Happy and sad this was. I was roaming this evening looking for something that was just moving. I found it here. Fall's leaves break free
and so will I---but not without this sad goodbye. Very descriptive and relates well to each line.

Thank you for your gift sharing.

  Parting is such sweet sorrow, or so they say! This was sad and wonderful! Love is never truly lost, though it may be in its physical form! It lingers forever in memories that form part of the fabric that covers the heart, and keeps it warm in the soul's winters!
