Goldfinch60

In Reality.



She was back,

There we were walking,

Walking up the hills

Towards the top of the Dales.

Our steps in harmony

Looking around at Nature’s beauty,

It’s beauty and wonder.

The green multicoloured swards

All around us

Dotted with the white dots

Of the sheep.

The plaintiff call of the curlew

Sounding so sad

But we were so happy,

Our love was so strong

And increased with each step,

Each step we walked in our life.

We reached the top of the hill,

Stopped and looked all around

At our world.

She walked up onto another hill

And I watched as she turned

Waved, smiled and said,

“See you soon”,

Leaving this world,

Leaving my world.

I walked back down

Knowing that we would meet again,

But she was still with me

As she was in this dream,

This dream that one day

Will take me back to her,

In Reality.

        I have a feeling you describe more than just a dream .. your words are filled with love and with longing ... a two way thing if ever there was ... I also have no doubt, you write the truth ... write on my friend ...

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Neville.

          Yes always the truth.

          'She walked up onto another hill
          And I watched as she turned
          Waved, smiled and said,
          “See you soon”,'
          how comforting these words may read to many who are dealing with a similar pain Andy, what a wonderful gift to share your positive outlook and offer a helping hand,
          beautiful in sentiment and penned so immersive:
          'It’s beauty and wonder.
          The green multicoloured swards
          All around us
          Dotted with the white dots
          Of the sheep.
          The plaintiff call of the curlew
          Sounding so sad
          But we were so happy,'

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Mek, she is always with me.

              excellent piece
              wholehearted
              truly enjoyed

                Andy, this is such a wonderful tribute to your late wife. I know you two will be together again one day, together in love and happiness.

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Love such as yours can never die Andy and your dream-experience with Joyce as told by these inspiring words proves that beyond doubt my dear friend.

                  • Goldfinch60

                    Thank you for your wonderful kind words Fay, they are very much appreciated.
