Love Unknown.


Calliope looks down upon me,

Her eyes searching my heart

For words to put on this page.

Every morning I see her

And feel her presence within me.

I sit before the page

And the words flow,

They turn towards love

The strongest of all emotions.

I think of the love of my life

And the years of passion

That have been with us,

So many years in love,

That love is so strong,

And gets stronger each day.

But each day I know

That I am losing her,

As her mind is being closed

Closed into her bubble,

Her bubble of dementia.

I can penetrate that bubble

And our love shines through,

But that bubble may soon close,

My love for her will stay strong,

But will she know.

  • Comment from author about the poem: I have a picture of Calliope, the Muse of poetry upon the wall of the room in which I write poetry. The music id from Tchaikovsky's Sixth symphony and the first chord of the movement is one of the saddest ever written.

    A sensitive write Gold. We remember when we met Cally in person, you and I!

  • orchidee

    In a similar vein, I'm not with a certain church at present, but why, when they had special prayer times for a person with the 'c' word, did the person later pass away? Really, we can only say 'Don't know why'.

  • Laura🌻

    Yes...Adagio Lamentoso...

    I’d like to believe that...
    As long as you know...
    She’ll always know!

    Much love to your
    beautiful wife!❤️

      Thank you Laura, you are so very kind. Bless you.


      Thanks ANDY ~ for a sad Poem today ~ but a sadness tinged with JOY we can all share as we share and care for our loved ones with limited communication and nearing Heaven's Door. They all know we love them and sometimes surprise us by what they say ! Memory extends beyond the GRAVE so our love will never die. For those of us who have "Assurance of Salvation" we surely know we will be reunited in the Glory when all physical & mental imperfections will be swept away ~when our Mortal shall be clothed with Immortality ~ AMEN ! Please check my Cockney Rhyming Slang Poem & Video ~ BROTHER BRIAN (UK) & SISTER ANGELA (NZ) Thanks for T's very haunting 6th SYMPHONY a perfect complement to your elegant poem ~ B !

        Course she will know you Andy.... she's just going to where words are superfluous...........

        • Goldfinch60

          Thank you Lorna, that is a great way to express the situation.

        • Michael Edwards

          As Cat says - she must be one super lady but you must be a hell of a man - I've great respect for you both.

          • Goldfinch60

            Written from the heart and a beautiful piece by Tchaikovsky. Thank you for sharing!
            Those we truly love are never lost and those years of passion never really go away. You'll both carry them in your hearts forever (and through your words, you'll carry them through the minds of others too).

            Wishing you both the best!

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Fox, you are right that passion will be with us as our Spirits go towards eternity.

            • Fay Slimm.

              A heart-wrenching write along with the music - - such test on true love is that final question in the last line. Love and hugs to you both - from Fay.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Fay, our love will never fail.

              • dusk arising

                I think life and love springs things upon us which we dont anticipate but through it all love teaches us about ourselves and our place in this existence as we become ready for the next.
                However your futures unfold there will be love holding both your hands as your guide.

                • Goldfinch60

                  Thank you da, yes we will be together as w go on to eternity.
