A Sense of Being Loved

"Fading" - Makati, 24 September 2015
“Fading” – Makati, 24 September 2015

too soon

roses

fade and

wilt

and wither;

languishing

in heat,

drooping

under the

weight

of raindrops.

 

but the

memory

of love

lingers

and the

sense

of being

loved

stays on

though the

heart

grows old,

mind

grows dim,

and the

world

spins on.
