Fare Thee Well - Anaphora form

No longer will I search the stars for that bright
shooting star that bursts like a rocket through
the cobalt sky, exclaiming our love.
No longer will you hold me in your warm arms.
No longer will dawn steal my breath as twilight 
softly fades into a lavender sky.
No longer will my heart take flight with 
birds on the wing.
No longer will I sing songs with the sea.
No longer will there be four foot prints in the sand.
No longer will your laugh make me laugh too.
No longer will I enjoy food prepared by 
your sweet hands.
No longer will I feel cloaked by your love, 
protected by your presence, or safe when alone.
No longer will you be by my side.
No longer, no longer—

No longer will I feel sorry for myself,
but happy for you.
Fare thee well my love.
Fare thee well.

Connie Marcum Wong

Note* My husband is doing better now. My gratitude for your prayers.

    We are a real pair Matthew, because this morning I fell and broke four bones in my right foot and will have a cast on for about 4 to 6 weeks dr. said. Now he is helping me. We have lots of stairs in our home. We plan to hire some help. This year has been a challenge for us both. Thanks, Connie

    oh connie, this is sad, even though you ended it on a good note. To think that one day in the future you will be alone, not knowing for sure when it might be. I'm so glad that for now he is doing better, and he is still in my prayers. IS this the form I saw an email about. I need to study it out.
