The Poets' Garret

The Poets’ Garret

My words on paper fail to ease the pain
As memories flow like tears on a page
Mere words will never bring her back again
One more lesson in the wisdom of age
A deafening silence now surrounds me
No more laughter echoing through the room
No more is it her loving smile I see
To comfort me when my mind’s lost in gloom
Yet even so I know her love was mine
As was the touch that healed my crying soul
And soon enough the sun will come to shine
As I wake to the kiss that makes me whole
When nightmare dreams have cast their evil spell
Only she can save me from the sleep fueled hell

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
