A Sketch Of Love

Posted on September 18, 2010 at 9:55 PM

With one sheet of paper

And colored pencils too

I rely on memory

To draw a sketch of you

In just a few strokes

A faint ghost appears

An angel of beauty

That rolls back the years


Your hair gently flowing

With a hint of breeze

Ears, nose and chin are

Quickly drawn with ease

The smile I draw always

Brightens up my day

Lips full and lovely as

If it were yesterday

The eyes will say and tell

Which will it be today

I give my hand freedom

To let come what may




A moment to reflect

My tear falls to the page

Quickly it is blotted

Ahh. Our love grows with age

To fate or destiny

The reasons are not few

Searching for your image

Then on I continue




How your eyes do sparkle

I add a pastel green

For one captured moment

To me so long unseen

A lightened shade of red

Brings forth a rosy cheek

With here and there a touch

My recall is complete


I take a final look

It takes me back in time

Life and youth together

we shared love sublime

I place upon the flames

My simple sketch of you

The image is consumed

But not my love for you
