table for one
soft strings stream from the
slightly drowning out whispers
floating throughout the
openness of this place
its reverberations caressing the
flame of a single candle
centered atop a corner table
casting a dim light on a
sea of lost thoughts
where two once sailed as one
july two thousand thirteen

makes me think of dear heart song…
a single room, a table for one
had not heard it until just now – so glad this poem made you think of such a lovely song
How sad… My heart aches for you (or whoever this piece may be about). I believe you captured the moment perfectly! Kudos!
Thank you so much for the sentiment and I assure you all is well here 😀
