Cherished and Loved


So deep in thought
I don’t hear you
call my name.
I close my eyes and
take a deep breath when
I look back down a rose
lays on my page.
I turn around and see another
on the floor then another.
I start to pick them up and
follow their trail up the stairs
stopping at our bedroom door.

I frown when I open the door
I see rose petals leading a path
to our bed, where more petals
are scattered across the covers.
The room becomes dark then
candles start to come alive.

A voice from behind me says
have I told you much I cherish
and love you in my life.

Tonight you will know over and over again!

You haunt


You haunt the shadows of my mind.
Memories of yester-years.
Dreams once bright burn no more.
Laughter now takes on a erie silence.
Everything around me has grown dark.
Warmth has turned to bitter cold.
You haunt the shadows of my mind,
soon I will be but a memory.
