You whisper softly,
I shush your lips,
Brush your frown
Into a smile,
Beg you not to leave
“Please stay a while?”

You slowly raise your hand,
Fingers caress my cheek,
Eyes plead with me
To let you speak

I love you forever”
You say as you drift away,
I plead with you,
Beg you to stay.

My love, my love
I will always grieve thee
And if you truly loved me
Why did you leave me?

Anna :o]

With thanks to Claudia at dVerse Poets Pub for the inspiration

A tender poem full of longing.
Lovley flow and a beautiful take on the prompt.

Of course, this reminded me of the feelings one has when a loved one died--what you may have meant--though it can be much wider.

Thank you for your kind comments folks.

manicddaily ~ yes, it was about death (which always comes too soon for the observer (who loves - as in friendship)), the passing of man I had great feelings for.

Heart wrenching, sigh...

It's kinda of common this to happen... but not so common to find beautiful ways to express the feeling.
Just beautiful!
