The sun had gone to sleep, putting to rest

the worries of the day. Silence at last.

This maybe the time when it is the best

laying to rest bad memories of past.

 

But the last rays of the slowly dying

sun fell upon your portrait on the wall,

in a quick vivid flash reigniting

painful memories one should not recall.

 

I saw your closed eyes, your pale, lifeless face;

earthly beauty, lying in fast eclipse,

n’ lamenting the loss of beauty and grace,

I felt the last kiss from your ice cold lips.

 

I thought: how could a condemned man have fun?

…So I cursed the day and the dying sun…

I admire first this skillful sonnet, but equally so the sentiment, as I find myself feeling aa similiar way about my brother who passed away a year ago. You wrote that emotion so eloquently, without overstatement, and I think the night hears all of our sad stories that daylight cannot understand. Thanks for this poem, I think I needed to read it tonight.

I know these feelings. I am greatly saddened. Hence your sonnet works, Peter. Love and peace to you,

Regis

Oh, Peter, surely that's too much for any man to accept. It's no wonder if you feel wearied.
The poem is exquisite and heartfelt.
Blessings,
Christine
