Cindy this so hauntingly beautiful I can feel the sadness and longing breathe through your lines. Although this is a sad poem....I know you have intended to end it on that ray of hope that you carry in your heart for John.
I love what you have done with the title for the contest and the rhyme and flow are impeccable.
"Light replaces longing
To set my soul at ease
Our reunited love
Is carried on a breeze"
^my favorite verse!....I can picture spirits soaring off to Heaven....just beautiful. Thanks for entering the contest....awesome job! Love, Debbie
