Winds Of Change

Winds Of Change

Winds of change blow once more
Lifting dust layered memories
Exposing year's painful trails
Thoughts swirling on a breeze

Winds of change blow once more
Young girl's innocence stolen away
Carefree days, lost forever
No longer sounds of joyous play

Winds of change blow once more
Glimpses of future hopes and dreams
True love opens her heart to heal
Happiness hers again it seems

Winds of change blow once more
Motherhood she embraced
Filling a heart with unknown love
Finding herself in one small face

Winds of change blow once more
Life left shattered all alone
True love taken away too soon
Names engraved upon a stone

Winds of change blow once more
Her heart tells her the end is near
Time to release all life's pain
She weeps for those held dear

Winds of change blow once more
For each death a new life starts
Hers has come full circle
New memories filling hearts

Winds of change blow once more.........

    Hello Miss C,

    The beginning brings in the succeeding verses very well: it seems to be, nay, is reminiscent of having your head in the clouds as thoughts are "swirling on a breeze" on every occasion the "winds of change blow once more." It prompts a mental image of an aged woman lingering at the patio, which overlooks the ambient area, while musing over the course of her lifetime every time the breeze sweeps past her.

    "Winds of change blow once more
    Glimpses of future hopes and dreams
    True love opens her heart to heal
    Happiness hers again it seems"

    Love, in essence, never fails to amaze me. Thanks to its lasting influence on the human race, having a purposeful life on Earth is feasible.

    "Winds of change blow once more
    Her heart tells her the end is near
    Time to release all life's pain
    She weeps for those held dear"

    As I come across this verse, my heart wrenches in pain due to the viable truth of life being a constant change. (I just want you to know, Miss C--and I hope I'm not being ridiculous--that, even though I have never met you in the flesh... I love you!)

    As the "Winds of change blow once more.........", the ending--laying emphasis on the continuity of life--ultimately blows me away.
    It is a very engaging read, to conclude.

    Love,
    Debbie

    I loved how you portrayed life in this poem: every stanza a different picture which I can relate to in so many ways.

    Winds of change blow once more
    For each death a new life starts
    Hers has come full circle
    New memories filling hearts

    Loved the way you chose to end the poem......accepting the inevitable with hope of a new life.

    Oh this poem such a sad poem... i know the truth u are facing in your life. without ur husband it is so difficult to accept joys of life...

    sometime i think your most poems about your husband.. you write for him becoz u love him..

    but you know first time i felt that your this poem is about you... i saw the reflection of your sorrows in your this poem.. maybe while writing this poem you were thinking about your sorrows....

    the sorrows. that still burn inside you.... the grieves. that still hurt inside you... such a sad poem...

    sometimes... somewhere. you are so alone... i know.. im so sad..

    cindy my prayers are with u

    Winds of change blow once more
    Her heart tells her the end is near
    Time to release all life's pain
    She weeps for those held dear

    my favourite stanza....
