Fay Slimm.

No Chance



No Chance.


As each ebbing tide tumbles seaward 
to leave but remembrance
on sand's tear-washed places,
as a breaker flings sad over thought
and sighs reassemble 

my desire turns to past embraces.


As life's rollers drag re-call heedlessly
back thru' unforeseen grief 
to where incompletion dwells,
as on-moving time sanctions seasons    
I confront the regret

that we had no chance for farewells.

    A nice write Fay.

    • Fay Slimm.

      Many thanks Orchi.

    • Alan .S. Jeeves

      This is a credit to yourself and MPS. Some words when cocktailed with wisdom and shaken (not stirred) are very special indeed.

      Hope you will allow it me as a Fay've (Any chance?).

      Ex animo, Alan

        What a generous comment and thank you Alan - - am so pleased you enjoyed No Chance and most certainly you are allowed it as a "Fay've" my friend.

        Good evening FAY ~ sorry to be late with our reply ! We loved the Rhyme Pattern & Metre in this Poem very elegant ! When we are faced with the EMPTINESS in our lives occasioned by the death of a Loved One (V1.) echoes in our memories of past embraces ! V2. extends the grief occasioned by a sudden departure and this is expressed by the final doublet !

        I confront the regret
        That we had no chance for farewells !

        Our experience is the Death of Grandparents and the premature & sudden demise .of Friends & Relations ~ However reading the context if yt is the Death of Partner ~ the pain is magnified a thousand fold ! Thanks for sharing ~ AMEN

        Blessings & Love & Peace & Joy
        Yours ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

        What a wonderful emotion laden write Fay.
        Those farewells will be hellos in time.
