And Stillness Falls I Fear!

Stillness falls

memories fade

only lost

forgotten dreams.

************

Times of love

times of joy

fleeting memories

even schemes.

************

But love was lost

in “the now” time

how hopeless

it does seem!

************

But when I see

your smile again

my eyes swell

with joyful tears!

************

And the little things

again flood my mind

and quiet

my gnawing fears.

************

I’m back again

to magical times

where it all began

my dear!

************

But ever so quickly

memories fade

dreams disappear

and stillness falls I fear!

    Beautiful, sad, haunting, and I am at a loss of words…I’ve lost too many family members to cancer and I thought of them when I read this. Thank you.
