It's been a couple of years since you left.......



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 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'.

It's alright to grieve and to take all the time you need. When he comes to you in a dream, it is so nice but to wake up and find it isn't true is not much fun. Anyway they are with their creator and much better off than we are here. We stuggle on with our fears.

A lyrically interesting and arresting description of grief and of "survivor's guilt", Silver! The sad ache behind these words is real enough to touch! To an artist, emotional pain is all too often inspiration for transcendent work...! Bravo!

Silver, your poem is beautiful and reminds me of my father and sister. How I wish I would have had more time to spend with them. They are gone but we will never forget them.
