Heart beats on

by TJ Arizona Eagle   Nov 4, 2010

Mountains rose high in a sky turning
purple with splashes of lilac and gold
creating a back drop for the emerald
arms of the welcoming forest trees.

A rising moon spread a satiny carpet
of silver across a dark silent lake .
An owl sounded eerily in the evening breeze
accompanied by a loon calling sadly.

Rustling of leaves caused reason for
caution and yet I walked fearless upon
a path leading to my hearts desire.
Love guided me through the unseen.

In the clearing a cabin of logs loomed
ahead, smoke billowing from the chimney
lights dimmed romantically, the fragrance
of fresh chopped wood filled my senses.

Heart pounding I approached the door,
hand shaking I hesitated for just a
moment .Knocking was greeted with a
smile and open arms. wrapping me in a
warm embrace.

Death took her long ago, yet her spirit
waits for me each anniversary day. I meet her
in our special place where love lives on
even death is unable to stop our forever
