Poetry Tuesday – There I Abide

Will you remember me
In some distant land,
Where we walked by the sea,
Hand-in-hand?
Will you feel my kiss
Tender on your lips,
Though years amiss?
Green to red turn tips,
As autumn claims her lot.
Time slips away,
And I am not
The same as yesterday.
Weary and worn,
Years upon years,
Tattered and torn,
Bittersweet tears,
But hope has a hold
On my heart evermore,
For no matter how old
Our souls, they soar.
Remember my word
From long ago.
I keep it — heard
By you, so just know —
My love for you only grows,
No matter what and why,
For wherever your heart goes,
There I abide and never die.
