Another Season Passes...

Time passes so quickly
While you are away
The cold of Winter will soon be gone
The sweet beauty of Spring beckons
When the days will come alive
With the warmth of sunshine
And songs of birds
New buds will blossom
And colour the meadows
Their fragrant flowers scenting the air
Small insects will flit from flower to flower
Skimming over ponds and brooks
Leaving little ripples on the surface
Their gossamer wings shimmering
Like jewels in the sunshine
The soft breeze will stir the wild grasses
Carrying their soothing song near and afar
The trees will be newly leaved
In anticipation of Summer
And Summer will follow soon after
Another season will pass too soon.
Where are you dear one?
It seems too long
Since I have read your words
There is an emptiness in my seasons
Without your presence here...

“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”

While You Were Away...

My winter has been cold
While you were away
I watched endless roads
You may have traveled on your way
Through wild mountain passes
Cols and valleys far away
Along the edge of gorges
The waterfall’s fresh spray
As it tumbled over ravines
Splashed on rocks to find its way
To pristine lakes and rivers
Where it would finally lay
The beauty of green pastures
Where white cows happily grazed
Meadow flowers in the sunshine
Wild grasses as they swayed
The beauty of pine forests
A cool and fragrant place to stay
To rest and refresh
From the heat of a Summers day
And hoped you found the happiness
In the wonder of each day...

Poem - Dianne Dawes ... ♥

This poem is for you dear C.B. I hope you had a wonderful journey with many happy memories to remember and arrived home safely?

Far and Away...

As you sleep
And dream of places
Far and away
Those special destinations
Which call you
Which await you
I think of you
And wish you
Days of happiness
And discoveries of joy
I pray for your safety
Throughout your journeys
On the roads and trails
To adventure
On which you travel
And take you
Far and away…

Love Set Free ...

Sweet petals of the rose
I send to thee
Messages of love
From my heart
On wings spread far
To set them free...
No creature of beauty
should be caged
Nor silent kept
Set free to sing 
Her songs of love
In Earths fine air…
