Hello coffee lovers and avid readers! Welcome to Olive’s Library at Olive’s Café, where you can read the stories of adventurous characters as they explore life.
Here’s a poem about a woman who lost her husband, but after a time of grief, she goes outside for fresh air and rewinds memories of when her husband was alive.
I’ve been frozen in my room
The walls closing in on me
But I remain still on my bed.
Can I see my soulmate again?
As I see the first snow fall,
Hearing it sing outside.
The melancholic spell dissipates.
I walk out to dance to winter’s song.
Can I embrace my soulmate again?
I parade in rhythm around the swings
As I remember my first dance with him
My first smile at him
My first kiss with him
My first giggle from him
My first love.
Can I live with my soulmate again?
I fall onto the bed of snow,
Smiling as I reminisce for the first time
He may be gone, but his love lives on through me
And I can dream again.
I can let my soulmate go…
You are my dream.
