Samhain Visit – Jacqueline Nash

Happy Halloween everybody. Thought I would re-post my poem Samhain Visit written in 2014 today as it is Halloween.


Samhain Visit

Here in my room with just a candle for light,
the flame flickering madly and not very bright,
I await for the love of my life to come in
on this October night we call Samhain.

Please don’t forget me, come to me tonight,
to put your lips to my lips and to hold me tight,
to see once again that beguiling smile,
to see your eyes so blue; if just for a while.

Suddenly a gust, the candle dies, darkness,
the door creaks open, I can feel his closeness,
his breath on the back of my neck blows gently,
then so quietly, he whispers softly to me.

You would not want to kiss my lips now cold,
or feel the chill from my arms when in my hold,
do remember my smile and my eyes of blue,
and until your day comes, I will wait for you”.

I stand up, turn to face him, but he is not there,
I relight the candle, I search everywhere,
but I know he has gone back, has returned,
through the thin veil to the Otherworld. ©

About Jacqueline C Nash

Jacqueline loves to write poetry and has also written a book but none of her work has been published, she writes purely for enjoyment. It has helped her through good and bad times, the last few years of which have been particularly difficult. Her poetry is inspired by nature and life in general. Much of her work is from true life, sometimes stretching the truth a little, but it is also from her imagination. Jacqueline is a firm believer that creativity feeds the soul. As well as poetry she loves music, dance and dabbles in mixed media art and up-cycling.
