Your voice remembered sounds
Like a whisper of the night.
Soft and low it flows.
Hushed so that I might
Feel your presence here
Beyond the light.

Your face remembered there,
Shadowed, like a distant dream.
Close and yet beyond me
As time now stands between
Your heart and mine,
And so it seems

That this, now sacred memory,
Is all I have to hold me tight.
Is all I can remember
As evening draws the fading light
And I am left alone
In dead of night.

Very moving,Romantic,I loved the Line " Close and yet beyond me."
The last stanza gives the poem a particular chekhov style poignancy ,that gives it a unsettling but aproachable thread.-I hope there is good news to come in this siloliquy ,well done and welcome to ww.

Beautiful, haunting poem. Very atmospheric (if there is such word!) I particularly enjoyed the second stanza.

Hello Emma,

Well done, a beautiful piece. Losing someone close can be tough, more than those who have not might realise. This a gentle evocation of how it feels, simple, unadorned and therefore genuine.

Don't change a line or phrase, it was right when you wrote it and will remain so.
