Another Evening

It’s a wine drinking, music listening, poetry writing kind of night…

Empty Nest

Some souls recognize each other.
From the very first time that they meet.
Some call it love at first sight.
To you and I it was home so sweet.

People have searched for years
To find the one that makes their soul sing
You and I were the lucky ones
Our souls singing like birds on the wing

The melody grew through the years
As we added beloved chicks to our nest
Now my soul has been silenced
My heart in pieces in my chest.

And now our chicks are fledging
Taking flight on their own
They’re ready for the world
Tears fall when I’m alone.

When I’m alone.
2011
