Silver Lining

Kevin Michael Bloor

I'd penned, with endless, dull duration
the sadness of our separation.
A tragic tale you're tired of hearing,
but listen, for it’s turned endearing!

The tide that seemed so long in turning,
the bridge we thought was burnt, not burning:
Each one a death knell; we were certain!
The play was done, down came the curtain.

Those years we lived apart with others,
like husbands, fathers, wives and mothers
were long, but stars were realigning.
The clouds do have a silver lining!

And more than we had dreamed or wished for,
This pair of lovebirds, who were done for
returned to life! These star-cross'd lovers
embraced once more, thank God above us!

    the sheer joy in your closed eyes delight
    is imbued in these words of gratitude
    to fate or your deity's gifted rewards..
    such a wonderful reading experience
    thank you, dear Poet
