My Ever Known

by Mark   Jul 22, 2019

Tho' I have aged, her grave appears as new;
Instilled in time with time that stole her youth,
Belaying 'neath the cruelest mire - death knew
To stain the satin dress that dawned love's truth.
When winds alike too take my oldest breaths
And rests my lonely sheath for lasting sleep,
Will I by spirit-in it's soulful depths -
Recast thereby my angel of the deep?
If not: let worms leave that of love and mine,
By her my love did know and there shall dust
And all my remnants form her name to pine;
The nothing which awaits my ardent rust.

To when my grey becomes the coldest stone
Shall light or dust reveal my ever known.

    Truly beautiful. It is an unbearable thought losing the love of your life and having to still live on without them. A lovely sonnet with beautiful imagery portraying such an emotional subject. Milly x
