Another Friday and a prompt from Kellie to pick one of the titles presented, so here goes..
Be sure to check out Kellie’s blog at:
Years went by, but the memory remained
Only a return would answer the thought
All those days gone by, yet so vivid
Two lovers, with moments they sought.
It remained, though many would pass by
The old gate guarding the place they met
Both families vowing to keep them apart
Two hearts as close as they could get.
Careful of the aged frame, it opened wide
The garden was still maintained it seemed
There was the bench where they would sit
Sharing each other in all they dreamed.
A tender voice as he turned slowly around
There she stood surrounded by such a glow
Time and life had furrowed her brow
But it was a face he would always know.
Taking her hands in his without a word
So much said with just that gentle touch
Was it the flowers, the breeze or sunlight
The light of her eyes said so much.
Though each went their way so many years ago
Families understanding them just a little late
The connection they share will never give up
As they meet each year behind this Ivy Gate.
