Candlewitch

Chimes

Chimes

time's tide,
cannot
dim my eyes,
for the vision
of your face
is forever refreshed
in my mind.
your voice
is a silver toned bell
that rings
throughout the halls
of my astonished head.
I hold memories
of you
engraved on
the pages,
of the book
of my life...

          I like the idea of 'memories engraved in a book of our lives', to paraphrase. A well written tribute to a lucky man, Cat!

                  Steven is a lucky guy. Love this poem - forgive me but I prefer your work to Eddies - well just a tad anyway.

                  • Candlewitch

                    thank you Michael! I always thought that eddy is a better poet than me, because he is so open and I am a bit guarded ;)

                    p.s.
                    Steven says thank you, too!

                    *hugs, Cat

                    • Michael Edwards

                      But your sweet reticence always comes through Cat

                      eddy is taking a rest I see. I enjoy this side of you equally. Love and hate swirling together in our complicated minds. You could be my sister.

                      • Candlewitch

                        dear James Michael,

                        I would be proud to have you as a brother :)

                              I am sure every one of us would love to be engraved on somebody's book of life. Great poem, Cat!
