I gather blossoms from the ground
and stand looking up into the face of the moon.
Somewhere in another place and time
I cheerfully sang another tune.
Tonight I am melancholy, sad and blue.
I am terribly missing you.
You left more than two years ago now.
I wasn't there to say goodbye to you.
I know the land you live in now
is magical and full of laughter.
Grief isn't for those who have passed
away....it is for those of us left after.
I miss your cheerful and happy voice.
You were so full of life and love.
It seemed I turned away for a moment
and you left and went above.
I smile when you visit me in my dreams.
You are so happy and full of cheer.
You smile at me and say you will see me later,
but we both know that it won't be soon or near.
I closed the door after you left.
I didn't watch to see you leave like I normally would.
I somehow knew in my dream you were gone
into the brightness of another world, as you should.
The warmth and peace of this dream lives within me still...
and yet my heart still aches for you so.
I have not come to terms with you leaving
and still ask why you had to go.
Someday I will be able to let go.
I know that time will take the sharpness of pain away.
Until then, I hold on to this thought...
and wait for the promised 'some day'.
