My Cousin asked me to post this poem. and need your Crituiqe please.

Love Tinka



 

 

Oh gentle breeze where are you now

Where were the times your touch was there

the soft cares of your hands on my shoulder

your fingers through my hair

the soft cares on my weary feet

the touch, soft words the kindness you've shown

where are you now?

where did you go?

no word ! no goodbye !

Your voice is quiet!

Your touch is gone

so bitter sweet the knowing, it is forever

Never to be touched

never to caressed

never to feel you

never to hear your voice

Never, never , never

Oh how bitter sweet

 

By Deon Steyn

strong emotion, heartfelt longing, tenderly expressed, lovingly conveyed
Reviewed by Andy Turner 1/20/2012
A poem that has the reader brought in and feels the pain of the forlorn of unrequited love.

Powerfully written, one can relate to the hurting. Prolly more bitter than sweet.
Reviewed by Barbara Terry 1/15/2012
Except for 1 s missing on caress, the story in poem form is great. The feelings of anxiety, sorrow, bewilderment and doubt are all there. I can see the tears in the eyes of the speaker, whose heart has been broken beyond repair. Something I know a little about. Where indeed gentle breeze, is your soft caress?

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and who love you, and be with you always and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

I think this line should read as "never to be caressed." But I can "feel" what is expressed in this poem. I have lived this situation. Thank you for sharing, TinkaSweets. Love and best wishes,

Regis
