Altar of Remembrance

Altar of Remembrance

All things you are to me I now render unto our altar of remembrance…

No long list this of platitudes and love words written idly…

Our love deserves a solemn, sublime space here in the domains of our souls…

Reach gentle fingers to your heart and watch the wispy thoughts of yesterday rise softly before you…

With caressing fingers hold the moments that filled us with memories for the ‘morrow…

Smile with dreamy eyes the awkward delivery of our first kiss…

Ah, the wafting scent of the fragrances we sprayed on our bodies…

And the blushes we could not hide during the early blooming of our love…

The tedious nourishing of those magical moments when our bodies touched in the night…

The balladeers and violins of enchanting moments at our favorite bistros…

So many endearments…and I must leave you now with a misty good-bye…

Author: Website: http://brchitwood.com - B R Chitwood - My Mission: Writing to Discover Me

I'm a young man in an old man's body, trying to catch up to myself, trying to find pieces of me I left back in a disconnected youth and the early years of manhood. I'm a stereotype of many in my generation who can play the 'blame game', yell 'foul', and 'let's start over'. But, we are what we are, the sum of all the scary kid-emotions we experienced, the gin mills and piano bars that became our sandboxes of pleasure - lotus eaters of the best (or, worst) kind, the love affairs that did not quite settle us down, the sad poetry and songs written in bars and motels along the way... A Dreamer! A Wanderlust! The world needs such fools as we to write our books, our poetry, our songs, to offset the madness that plagues the soul. I've written fourteen books, over three hundred blog posts, in search of those pieces left somewhere in many parts of the globe. You can preview my books on the next page. There's even a Blog page...all my posts are not showing on this recently created blog page, but, if you want to read more, go to my official blog site and check out the archives: http://www.thefinalcurtain1 Writing for me is therapy for the soul.

  1. Nothing funny to say about that poem, Billy Ray. So intimate and personal, I wondered if you meant to push the send button. Kinda like my first love letter that I dropped into the mail box, then reached back trying to fish it out (With some readers, I’d have to explain what a mailbox was.) Some beautiful words there, BR, well-blended.

    I’ve some catching up to do. I’ve been so busy, I haven’t been able to visit with my favorite writers in websville. BTW, I tried something new, you might be interested in: http://septuagenarianjourney.com/know-your-uniqueness/

  2. Brilliant! I want your ‘Uniqueness’ NOW! One of the best essays I’ve read, good friend…some ‘envy’ comes with this comment! ♥ Brilliant, I say,, because the tie-in was heart-rending – ‘Stephen Hawking’ – ‘Schuler’s Hour of Power’ – the unforgettable ‘James’! Loved it!
