This is tender and inspiring. I like the imagery you created along the way, too, especially the embers in the last verse. That image stuck with me. Great writing. Hugs,

|"...drawing/Near when we hide wounded eyes and weep,/ I value the nurture nature of awareness in these lines. This defines such vulnerability. I also like, "Never forsaking us when our dying/Embers whiten;/" What a novel way to express this stage of life.|

|Underlying the wisdom of your poem is the oft times ignored value of "respect" in allowing love to flourish. And... what a photo you've posted to remind us.|

|Eternal indeed! His love is the only perfect love. A quote of mine: "Human love is to devote a part of ourselves to the providence of another existence. To be without this devotion is to be void of love."
Richard Your talent is boundless. Thank you for sharing.

|Sir Richard the Invincible
Beautiful and self fulfilling words that aptly describe the mystery and magnificence of love eternal.You touch a spot with velvet assuredness that not many of us ever reach or realize.
Never let your quill run dry my friend or the world will become a darker place without your gracious presence.
Onwards and upwards

belated happy new year,

|Quite simply, love never fails - at least, not the love you speak of here. It is unquenchable and irresistible. It's what makes the jigsaw puzzle of our lives complete and erodes the edges between all the myriad pieces, bringing the whole into totality. The stillness and purity inherent in your final stanza is both satisfying and intensely moving. Bless you, Richard LC xx|

|Sad and beautiful Richard. I especially love the ending "He strengthens us, with
Assurances that love remains forever…"
|Reviewed by Douglas Bentley
|I'm in shell shock
This poem really touches the heart
Heard a wise man say
Hope and faith will fade away
But CHARITY will always stay."
Amazing poetry Richard

|I like the way your poem progresses from darker images, airy images, liquid images to images of fading flames... this progression shows the idea of gradations of love as well as giving a sense of its durable, adaptable nature. This is a fine poem, full of meaning, wisdom and simple understated eloquence... excellent work, richard...
Be well and at peace with all those you meet.
