#650 – Forever;

You want,
To know the truth?
Well, if truth must be told –
I’ll love you forever and for,
Always.

#forever

#634 — Incense;

With the twilight breeze,
Burning fragrance of her breath,
Waft slowly to me.

#incense

#631 — Contentment;

Drown me,
In the waters,
Of the Lake Ubari —
Let me live my life for just one
Moment.

#contentment

#630 — Memories;

Ripples
Of your laughter,
Drift in the morning air —
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.
Chasing,
One the other,
You’re running on the floor
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.
Giggles,
Silent whispers
Your echo in the air —
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.
Because,
I can’t let go,
Memories in me flow,
Portrait on the wall, listen, you
Are here.

This poem is the first of my attempts to combine and present #cinquain poetry in a ghazal style (last line of each verse similar in all verses). I can only hope it is acceptable to fellow poets and appealing.
My wife lost her battle with cancer three years ago, on May 5th, 2014. She was only forty-two years old. She left behind two very young daughters and memories of her with me. I dedicate this poem to her memories.

#627 — Shadows;

Shadows,
Refuse to drown,
However hard I try,
To sink them into the night that,
Surround.

#626 — Restlessness;

Enough
It is for you,
That he lives in your heart —
Say it then to his restless days,
And nights.

#restless

#622 — Rogue;

The rogue,
Who stole my heart,
Parts my eyelids and peeps,
Only to laugh at me and run,
Again.
