Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Love at Samhain

Inspired by and written for Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – thank you GC and Sue

The Sabbat of Samhain (31 October) translates as summer’s end. Samhain is my favourite Sabbat and is considered one of the most holy days of the year. The veil between the physical and spiritual worlds is at its thinnest and our loved ones in spirit can return to be with us for a brief time. My own experience tells me that is true, and I have no doubts about that. Here goes…

Love at Samhain
Form: Sestet Couplets

In Autumnal rain the evening shimmers wet
Reflecting the light of love I’ll never forget
I’m lighting candles of black and white
Preparing a feast for you tonight
Watching the shadows cavort with the fey
The magic of you is on its way
Samhain night a time to celebrate
The love that was destined to be our fate
In eternal love you are my bride
In life, in death, I am by your side
In the stillness of time I feel you, dear
As once again our love is holding us near
And though I’ll miss you to the end of my days
Love brings you to me in so many ways
To hold my hand when times are dark
In howling winds where no dogs bark
For eternity was my love’s vow
I meant it then and I mean it now
