  • Maureen Lyons

    My darling, ten long years have gone since death forced us to part: But though your body's in the grave you're always in my heart. Though I no longer see your face Nor catch your fleeting smile, I sometimes catch your shadow When it lingers near awhile. And sometimes in the garden there apart Our own trees whisper, whisper heart to heart To my fond lips, the eager answers fall, Thinking I hear you, thinking I hear you call. And so my dear one, some day I may dream of your dear presence, if God so would deem: And then instead of just a photo's kiss I'll kiss your real face darling, if I'm granted Heaven's bliss. read more
