Portrait Of Romance

01 Oct

He Sat Alone

Moonlight

Breaking Through The Curtains

Of The Old Room

He Gazed In Loneliness

At The Dim Portrait

Faded Through Time

Upon The Wall

His Eyes Were Tired

And Sleep Was Soon

To Cross His Pale Blue Eyes

Old Eyes Of Beautiful Memories

Of Beautiful Love

The Portrait Flickered

In Moonlight Glow

And Upon His Silent Form

A Young Girl Smiled

Into His Heart

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

Wandered

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 Frame

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 Angels Smile

Upon Her Face

    Oh, I loved your LOVE poem, Ian, and the music has always been one of my very favorites. In a music box atop my dresser. Blessings.

      Hi Kim, thanks for your lovely comment, I love to hear my efforts are appreciated, and my music was lovely, your music box with the same music must be so romantic.
      Best wishes for a great weekend.

        You are very welcome, Ian. Your words are equally beautiful! The music box was is an heirloom passed down from my great-aunt: an extra special treasure to me. 🙂 Thank you for the weekend wishes. Smiles to you, Ian.

      Hi Cat, you certainly get around, from Cuba to Cook Islands, I don’t think you have a home base, your always on the go, why did you pick Cook Islands for this adventure ?, have a great time Girl and enjoy life while you can.
      Take care.

    For some reason I cannot publish the Andre Rieu version. Anyhow I enjoyed listening to all the versions. I always loved the Lara theme.

    Your poem is beautiful, Ian. It fits a certain mood. It helps to cope with old age. Thank you, and thank you for ‘SOMEWHERE MY LOVE’. I went to utube and copied an Andrew Rieu version into my blog.

            Thanks Uta, Andy Williams has long been a favorite of mine since childhood, I could be wrong but I thought Claudia Cardinale was his daughter also, will have to google that query.
            Cheers.

        The two portraits of the loved ones separated, made me sad when I visualized this. I always enjoy reading your love sonnets, they are fill of emotions and passion, Ian. xo

    Beautiful Ian.. You captured the love, the loneliness and longing and the tear-filled memories of a time long past.. To bring it to it’s conclusion of Unity in Eternity..

    Loved it along with the music, just perfect.. 🙂

      Thanks Sue, glad you could appreciate the music to the words, I love that film and the music seems to capture the whole scenario of the era, the sort of music I would expect out of Tolstoys Anna Karenina.
      Best wishes for a beaut week.
