Broken - #64 ~

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

Love has had it's bittersweet moment's
Counting the day's and it's ways
Remembering all the teardrops scattered
Between the lakes & my heart broken bays;

Like the sea & it's many shores teeming
Love came and left much like the moon
Tides of regret have often held me captive
When 'true love' ended much too soon! ;

Remembering: David, Paul,
Sharon L. B. Rod Taylor (Your Witness)
Assembly of God Church
The Drive In- the last time i saw you
The wedding to Sharon (July 24)
You have ALWAYS held a place in
My heart. Hope that life has
Been good to you.


Dedicated to: Our Last Date
Your telling me that you and
Sharon were getting married
You and Sharon did get married
On July 24. Paul told me.
Today, all i have is a picture
Or two of you and another wife
I believe her name is Paula.
Vehicles have changed as well
Your RV is impressive but still
Cannot hold a candle to: 'The Northern Lights*~'
The one picture of you is way too small! ! !
Congratulations on your life and career
A Washington State Trooper, a contractor, a pilot
Your beautiful daughter Kate and wife Paula

Broken but not crushed.... time will heal the wound and you will feel whole again! If something is lost...there shall always a replacement, even better than the first!

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed

(((Advent)))

It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;

(((Beloved)))

An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
