Forever You Said – Fiona Munro

Tears fill the valley between us

Fiona Munro is a late comer to poetry and loves rhyme and metered poetry. She has been commissioned on many occasions for poems and prose. These are to make listeners laugh, or to evoke emotion, and are mainly for retirements and leaving speeches. She now seems to have become, in name only, the poet laureate of Eastbourne police. Thank you Fiona.

Forever You Said

I lay next to you
I watch you sleeping, I hear your breath
Memory of your touch still lingers from the past;
I cry silently
Tears fill the valley between us
I am invisible, translucent in your world
Forever you said love is all
My forever is everlasting yours forever short
I have a journey to let my heart let go of you

Fiona Munro, Eastbourne
