Relics of the Heart.. Final..

Yes, unfortunately, this is the last piece I could find in the journal. I’m kinda glad it’s last because I believe it has a hopeful tone…and a happy ending.

I think I’ve decided the poems belong to Morena…at least that’s what I’m going with. She was definitely a wonderful Lady!..and she definitely had an insight to a part of World War II that not many people can find in history books. I’m glad I met her….and I’m very glad that her poetry book found its way to me. I’m keeping it in my barrister case along with my collection of Antique Books. It’ll be safe and sound in there…maybe one day one of my children will want to look through it. And for Morena, as a writer, that is all we can ever really hope for. That our experiences and our emotions and every bit of feeling we mold into our work carries on…long after the planet doesn’t feel our footsteps any long.

For Morena, I’m happy that I could make that happen.For Her.

Dreaming

The evening is fair
The moon is bright
and you my Darling
are with me tonight

We will sit in the moonlight
and kiss in the dark
Whispering, “I love you”
or walk through the park

We’ll lounge by the fireside
and read by its glow
or gaze at the embers
as they come and go

We’ll go to a movie
that tells a love story
of her lover coming back
and is crowned for his glory

This night will have no ending
there will never be tomorrow
We’ll live this night forever
with no pain, no strife and no sorrow

-Morena LaBorde
1945

    Aww, the end? Quick! Scour some estate sales and see what you can find!
    This was a great poem. I hope her dreams came true. Thanks so much for sharing this and for keeping her safe. ❀️

    What a beautiful story and adventure. It makes me want to hand write some poetry. So you think she hand wrote drafts first before putting it in the journal? I don’t think I saw any scribbles or corrections! Thanks so much for documenting this for us! I will miss it. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ
