Poem Commentary

I dedicate this poem to  the love lost in War. Within hearts carry them.

Empty Arms

It was snowing the day they met
Their love was truly one one of a kind
Soul mates becoming one as the clouds meet the sky
Untouchable radiant penetrating souls
They did everything together they did it all
Joined at the hip they called them
Spending every waking moment together
Their love only grew stronger with time
It was snowing the day he left army bound
He sent letters she waited for everyone
Her heart carried his love deep inside
Cradled warmth from his letters kept her strong
His letters stop coming
He didn't return
She cried weeping profoundly carrying her broken heart
She grew old still his love was strong within her heart still lingered
Reading every letter one by one over and over again
One night reaching out for him closed her eyes and died
Out side the window it was snowing
There he was with open arms to meet her

Life is a merry-go-round of memories played to the symphony of lost dreams. Death brings back visions that never reached the dream world and what could have been becomes a reality. It's all written in the words of a song. Let's call the song Empty Arms.. Thanks for sharing another wonderful verse. LOL,BDC.

This kind of reminds me of the old movie "The Ghost and Mrs. Meure." I love what you have done with this one. Lovely.
