Great expression of heartfelt emotion.
Lana is a very lucky person....x
For a poem that deals with death, this is rather uplifting. I like it.
Lana you're one lucky gal. Lovely poem Charles...actually had me a little misty eyed :)
oh man. tears.
Sometimes the greatest of sentiments can be expressed in the simplest of terms.It kind of had a pull of bittersweet transiency to it.Perhaps the smoke emphasised that.
Dying love or undying love, no matter--all beautiful.
Life is all about finding the other who inspires poetry. I'm so glad you found each other.
Wow. That brightened up my day. Not to say what it did for Lana.
bang on, charles... i'm sure she feels the same way about her fave hubster.... :D
You're too sweet & you're NOT going to die tomorrow, sillyhead! I love you very much, too. I'm just not so adept with words.
Cool tribute to your lady. And I know Ms. Lana appreciates it, too! D

Just beautiful!Tears are sweet after reading such a piece. aloha-
This is simply beautiful. When I read it I thought of Marvin Bell's poem, "To Dorothy:"You are not beautiful, exactly.You are beautiful, inexactly.You let a weed grow by the mulberryAnd a mulberry grow by the house.So close, in the personal quietOf a windy night, it brushes the wallAnd sweeps away the day till we sleep.A child said it, and it seemed true:"Things that are lost are all equal."But it isn't true. If I lost you,The air wouldn't move, nor the tree grow.Someone would pull the weed, my flower.The quiet wouldn't be yours. If I lost you,I'd have to ask the grass to let me sleep.
Cloudia, thanks very much.Steve, thanks. That's a lovely poem to compare mine with. I appreciate the connection. You honor me.
That is beautiful, Charles. Your love shines through.
