The evenings spent together do remind
Of endless wait and timeless time
Of garnered courage and mysterious words
In garrulous form , like twittering birds.
Strange were the times we spent together
Awesome as they remain for now and ever
Close as we were through thick and thin
Churning deep feelings from well within.
The awesome smells & lingering sounds
Of earthen stoves and bantering crowds
Of sniffs of freshness and whiffs of love
Of wanton desires and a memory trove.
The fading sun in the horizons trails
Shining bright, though, sad and frail
The wandering minstrel, blazing hearts
Swinging melodies and whizzing darts.
Oft do the memories churn my soul
Wanton memories in silence cajole
The heart and mind to start and to win
The race of Time hugging eternity within.
I yearn for the days gone by and well past
As clouds afar over hills and valleys in a blast
Of rain and thunder in volleys and bursts
Quenching along a succession of thirsts.
