    A Love Game # 32

    HAIR OF JET

    Hair of jet
    Falls untamed
    Over alabaster skin
    Stark in contrast
    Like a ravens wing
    Against fresh snow

    WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (Rewrite)

    Harry's mind wandered
    As he wended his way
    Through crowded streets
    To a special someone
    Anna was his new love
    And he would see her that night
    As he hurried along
    He could smell her hair
    Feel the softness of her skin
    He could even taste her
    And he longed for her
    As he remembered
    Her smile, her kiss
    Her writhing body
    Then Harry stepped off the curb
    Oblivious to the danger
    And was struck
    By a car unseen
    Tossing him like a rag doll
    Depositing him unceremoniously
    Between car and gutter

    His body lay broken
    And bleeding
    Where it came to rest
    On the unforgiving street
    And the last image in his mind
    Was not the killer car
    But Anna his new love
    As his life ebbed away
    His heart beat its last
    The paramedic's best efforts
    Were to no avail

    A moment's carelessness
    Had cost a young life
    And his heart beat no more
    In his broken body
    But would beat once more
    In another's chest
    And reanimate
    To bring new hope
    To rekindle another's existence
    Bringing a new beginning for Sally
    Who, like a phoenix
    Rises from the ashes
    Of her frailty at the price
    Of another families grief

    OUR FIRST MEETING WAS BENEATH

    Our first meeting was beneath
    A sky of perfect blue
    When a shaft of summer sun
    Set your copper hair ablaze
    Unspoken smiles were exchanged
    Followed by silent acknowledgement
    And love bloomed like a desert flower
    After fall of summer rain

    LOVE ARRIVED LIKE A TEMPEST

    Love arrived like a tempest
    Sweeping him off his feet
    Leaving him breathless
    And trembling in its wake
    But although the storm
    Was a wind of change
    Which altered him forever
    It was not a breath of fresh air
    Her love was toxic
    She controlled like a terror
    And even loves betrayal
    Could not break the spell

    THOSE JOYFUL DAYS

    Gone now is that joyful day
    When we stood before God
    Humble in his blessed presence
    And we were joined as one
    When everything lay ahead of us

    Gone are those joyful days
    Full of love and laughter
    Days of tender moments
    And heady nights of passion
    When everything lay ahead of us

    Gone are those joyful days
    When we walked along the shore line
    Happy, carefree and in love,
    As we walked hand in hand
    And everything lay ahead of us

    Gone are those joyful days
    When God blessed our union
    And delivered perfect joy into our lives
    As our little family grew
    And we had everything we desired

    Gone are those joyful days
    When your smile lit up my life
    And my heart overflowed with love for you
    Before it was broken in two
    And everything was taken from me

    Gone are the joyful days
    Since you have gone ahead of me
    Now God has you by his side
    And I will miss you until that day
    When God has reunited us

    I look forward to that joyful day
    When we stand once more together
    But though my heart is broken
    I must delay our reunion
    Our sweet children need me
    And I must love them double now

    A nice collection of poems on life and death. Too many to collect on them individually. but I particularly liked "A moment's carelessness".

    They are all very nice. I especially liked When Harry Met Sally.
