Photograph taken by, Theresa F Koch

In the night she leaves her space barefoot alone
There in the green grass of the cemetery she walks
Taunting me she says she is lonely and misses me
I talk to her as if she is still in the flesh but she’s not
I am different now I am all grown up, but she’s sixteen
Long blonde hair flows like many years ago behind her
She seems so sad my heart aches at the time that’s past
What do you say after she’s been in the ground so long?
She says stay here with me, I say please don’t go away
I see the path its concrete it runs through the cemetery
I start to follow it but keep turning looking back to her
I turn and ask what about you she says stay, I say I can’t
She looks at me and starts to walk back to her grave
I yell what about you she says she’s tired and must rest
The world brings me back to life and I feel empty
I miss her but she will visit again when life is silent
When once again I put my head back dreaming of a friend

For my friend Kimberly Ahnette Palmer rest in peace

Theresa F Koch

I remember poems of Kimberly before. Like you I forever see my brother Michael at age 31. I am now older than him, it's strange sometimes. As always very good my friend.

Peace & Love, Janet xoxoxo

sad but I enjoyed reading your poem-I did a poem about a 16 year old but did it quite differently a long time ago-you can find it if you want to read it as

" I'm only 16 "
