Some moments are always remembered

You were so beautiful then...
Your laughter rang like a bell,
riding the September air like a wind blown lark, joy filled and full of sky.

I remember the moment it struck me. In an instant I was flooded with the stark knowledge that I loved you, deeply, utterly, totally.

It cut through the very fibre of me. So deep, that even now, when a half century has passed and you have been gone it seems a million years. There are times when the southerly breeze blows soft in through my window, that I can still hear your voice and feel your gentle hand squeeze my fingers. Just as you did that day we smiled for the camera, and I knew without doubt that you would be mine.

This has such a poetic feel to it...
Love and longing go hand in hand...
I wish they meet somewhere again wherever she is now...waiting for him to join her...
Beautiful Magpie!
