Lilacs, satin and lace
Missing satin and lace
Looking out my window
at bridges spanning diagonal frames
Eating alone
recalling words to long forgotten love songs
and hearing only the muted sounds of voices next door
Remembering our favorite names and soft words,
and the sound of her over-bite lisp
Like the smell of lilacs
Swept away
She was swept away.


  1. This is beautiful, but sad.
    Those “swept away” loves…them leaving or dying…can be brought back so quickly by a thought, a word, a smell, a song, etc. Sigh. Those memories can be so vivid.
    You’ve captured something I’m sure all human-beans can relate to.
    Excellent write, DSS!!! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
