Distant memories encounter solitary echoes
days of wonder tumble through time
Clock ticks unmelodious beats
again to hear, another church bell chime
Beauty seized by the hand of age
ancient soles shuffle blind
Love of kin remains a silent knock
slapping the senescent, heart and mind
Tears whirl and stream the creases
forlornness has walked it's final stroll
Praying for the Lord's arms of comfort
Please ! carry home this lonely soul

alone each day hearing the church bell chime with the loss of another friend, they know their time is coming closer with each ring of the bell.
I swear you brought tears to my eyes with this piece..
Thanks for the explanation..this was very heart-wrenching Luu.
I loved your ending..though it brings tears to the heart.
Well done babe.
Love you a lot xx
Luane? I almost forgot who you were? It's been so long!
This is freaking fabulous! Wow...I'm in awe right now. Partly because I've seen it and their eyes when you walk whether or not they know who you are or not...they sparkle! People love people...especially in those times...
Sadly beautiful!! Wonderful write! So glad I was able to come by and sample what you're doing these days.
Off to work the 2nd half of my day...but I will be back!!!
