-Thanks for sharing the
note and the poem, jaybird.
-Your love of your wife
shows through in the poem
because it comes from your heart.
-This image shows that very well:
"...now I stand poor,
against the wall."
-I also like the reference to the eagle.
-I am sorry for your loss, and
appreciate you sharing the poem.
It is always hard when people are missing loved ones who have passed away. Communications ceases, or nearly. The last stanza seems especially plaintive. Without faith, we do feel poor and backed against a wall, vulnerable. We feel a need to reach out even when, as the speaker wishes, someone is not there to hear our call in person, but somehow there is a way to communicate to regain some of that chance to 'make my life as bright as noon' once more. Interesting rhyme scheme. It makes it feel more cohesive than the speaker in the poem feels.
I can feel the lonely heartache of the one crying out for its future mate.
The rhyme was exquisite. I especially love that the last line of each stanza is four syllables, and each rhyming.
So beautiful :)
A wonderful emotion-filled poem of love. I particularly like the rhyming scheme you employed. Not to mention rhymes that actually rhyme. Something which is lacking in many works on this site. Again, well written and enjoyable to read. No edits or adjustments necessary.
Your poetry always, ALWAYS touches my heart. You have a gift, my friend and I am so glad you found it, used it, still use and honor us by bringing forth things you have created in the past. It is your art. Great job.
You are a joy to read and therefore, I can only assume a joy as a human being!
