Echoes of Daylight

Could not remember the time
When love made me feel
Too many a longing question
Denying life unreal

Echoes of daylight
Warm whisper through trees
If you think I’ll never miss her
Then God you don’t know me

Care for a reading?

  33. Beauty tinged with pain…they seem to go hand-in-hand.
    Very nice, Adam

  34. Perfectly said Dustus… and I can relate to it too… I relate to it so much that I am not able to hold my self from sharing one of mine that I have had posted few days back at twitter..

    Pain is
    When you feel like
    Stopping the sunrise.

    I loved your words and the question was apt… too.

  35. Goodness, such a beautiful display of emotion! Warming, chilling, longing–you capture your longing perfectly in these two short stanzas. Relateable, and heartfelt. Kudos, sir.

  36. Your last lines echo what often rings through my heart. Regardless of the circumstances… they hold truth in their simplicity and the complexity.

  37. Ahhhh!! It made me wanna cry.
    I think one of the experiences that more makes us feel real is missing somebody… how can you explain it? I mean it not always shows phisically, it is a total soul expression. The cold and tears are just the reflection of what´s really inside us.

    Great One shot!!

  38. The missing of someone. Deep. No question.

  39. Thats allot of power packed into a small verse…beautiful.

  40. Missing someone is tough.. the feelings aren’t easy to take.. a well expressed and worded poem, Dustus!

  41. Short but poignant AD, it pulls me into the moment very well

  42. Love the ending!

  43. I found the poem very heartwarming and got a real sense of yearning. Very nice.

  44. I love what Kodjo said about this poem, Adam. I wish I’d have thought to say that! Wonderful, melancholy read my friend. 🙂

  45. Patty Sherry Says:

    It is always with those first echoes of daylight that the realization and the missing feels the worst for me..lovely poem and wonderful to hear you read it.

  46. The words were powerful and the reading completed the experience.
    i like to read poems that deal with strong emotions.
    They mean so much more

  47. simply lovely, nice one shot

  48. The only thing worst than “not remember the time when love made me feel” is a loveless relationship making one feel dead.

  49. not miss her. How won’t you. After all fancy is more beautiful than the real.

  50. Makes my heart ache. Excellent!

  51. Great poem Adam and picture perfect to match. Glad to see you’re still at it!

  52. Excellent pairing of photo and poem, Adam. I like each line all a part of the whole poem. Each thought runs together, for me, in this one. My Father lost his wife, my Mother, at first dawn and he must have felt like this. This one I write down.

  53. excellent sentiment….wonderful image…great one shot…cheers pete
