Portrait Of An Ancient Love

26 Jun

In the stillness

Of the darkest night

He sat alone

The pale moonlight

Breaking through the curtains

Of aged memories

He gazed in loneliness

At the dim portrait

Faded through time

Of ancient memories

Upon the wall

His eyes were tired

And sleep was soon

To cross his pale blue eyes

Old eyes of beautiful memories

Of forgotten dreams

Of Beautiful love

The portrait flickered

In moonlight glow

And upon his silent form

A young girl smiled

Into his heart

A heart of memories

In the pale moonlight

His memory wandered

To times of younger days

He was young and carefree

Of heart

She held the hand

Of a younger love

Her face joyous

And full of laughter

In romance and love

Their dream of dreams


To memories of many lives

In many places

Always together

Hand in hand

Always young dancing

And romancing

In passions of love

Never fading

Never waning

Upon the wall

The portrait flickered

In moonlights glow

Engraved within

A faded picture

Of long ago

Were two lovers

In loves embrace

As dawn arose

They found him there

All alone

A gentle smile

Upon his face

Upon the wall

They saw his gaze

A beautiful girl

All alone

An angelic smile

Upon her face

    you weaved your story well Ian as I was behind the old man’s eyes reliving his past viewing the beauty of his love of long ago.. A touching poem that I think many who have no longer youth on their side will sit and remember as the reflect through the mirror of their mind.. ~Dreamwalker

      Think this one was written through an old mans life in one of my past life

    This song is timeless and I have heard other versions, one of my favorites was Dusty Springfield singing, but this is a gentle instrumental. Fits well with the memory this poem is about.

      I think I prefer the Dusty Springfield version
      She really is a fantastic singer and her songs are so beautiful

    Beautiful Ian and slightly sad.

    The dreams of youth are the regrets of old age…

    God Bless!
