And so on December 31, 2013, it came to pass. True Love!
Each night and through each long
Day, I hear voices always singing
A haunting melody of love. Its old
But still new and always bringing
Memories of the old yet recent past.
I try to shut them out, to no avail
Because instilled in me, is the desire,
To make them last and not ever fail.
They come to protect me, I am sure
Against the loss of our binding love,
And say: “interlopers, beware.
This ground is sacred, held from above”.
I do not ever want the spirit of our love
To leave, to go away to another place.
The picture in my mind, as I listen to
The melody of love is the smiling face
Of the one I have loved, whose spirit
Lives on in this, my Haunted House.
And so it will be forever more, the
Time will come quietly as with a mouse.
The Haunt and I will leave this house
Together to live again in our haunting
Spirit world where we haunt another
House of love.
