Hibernation – Original Poem

Our friendship took a back seat on that fateful day
The haunting stillness in the air freed the angels of death to reign on the broken bond that was once bound in blood

With one final glance you disappeared into the fog of a clear blue sky
Only memories remain
Darker and darker with each passing day

The thought of long auburn hair blowing in the wind
The touch of you fingers on my face one last time
The sight of the blue in your eyes soothing my failing youth

It was a time of yesteryear
A time of innocence
A time of comfort where the words from your heart warmed my senses

Each day, thoughts shared without a spoken word
Moments of reflection became a symphony of bliss

A force guided us home when lonely was our only friend
A stronger force showered away the laughter and broke the chain

Now, time is the enemy as I prepare to look into my past
It is you that forever remains in the hourglass of time drawing sand to the ground leaving our memories behind

Is this regret or a new beginning?

  1. Nice poem. If you wanted to tighten words, you could actually leave “It is you that forever remains in the hourglass of time drawing sand to the ground leaving our memories behind”

    As simply “It is you that remains in the hourglass of time”. I think the point will be kept.

    🙂 But it’s up to you.
