A Letter to Shirley

Bric-a-brac knick-knacks rest on glass table tops

Letters crafted in cursive

Upon walls paintings and pictures fine

 

An Iris in bloom,

a woman buried beneath woollens

undying faith in Christ divine

 

A message written across my heart

A love forever guiding

A hand held within mine

 

In years past

The flower of your memory wilted

myself, a presence in the vast expanses of your mind

 

A memory forever residing with me

For love never fails or dies

I will see you again in time
