“Without departure “

Long expected on this one day,
Heads headed two ways,
Lingering without time,
Doves, glide in to wave goodbye.
Your wings on us have grown.
Never will I fold your friendship like a flag that had flown.
Smiles you are so wise and poetic.
With the right kind of pleasure and pride of your own.
Untied after your rope pulled you another way. 
Free to come back and smile on us one day. 
Barren like gust and sun lighten plumes, on a rainy day.
In my eyes, you will always be the successor that got away.
I’ll await once more for your wandering heart, to compose.
I fell without departure to your notes.
My days will gaze for you to jump in with two feet and return, 
Yet, I will suffer..................
and lump it with a giant gulp, and ask :-( 
Must you really engage us with a sadden farewell?


inspired by: David William's............ poem "I"...

    A wonderful write PD and I agree that inspiration comes and we often fail to recognize that moment. I do need some some at the moment because I seem to be in a slump. Hope all is well with you. love phyl

    It's beautiful and heart touching beyond words. Inspiration many times comes so silently that we often do not recognize it and miss it. If it is felt it can lead to a creative write like yours. Great work PD and Hearty congrats on your win my friend and thank a lot for your words and greetings. Love and best wishes...Ravindra...Poet D

    will love be kind another time, or will you run away, the hurting tears do strike one blind, have passion if i may, or forgotten, cast away, when fortune goes astray, begone oh hurting day.... 'Departure' p.d. Don
