Lest I Forget

The fountain in my office reminds me of you
Your free flowing spirit
The water plays finding it’s own path
The giggling sounds it sings

How many times caught up in work
I’ve stopped 
And smiled
And let your spirit warm through me
Lest I forget

I’ll hike again this summer
I’ll go deep into the gorge
And when we stop at wonder rock
I’ll go alone to the stream
In deep remembrance I'll sit
And feel you once again

A jimsonweed I’ll pick for you
And breathe the bouquet deep
And then I’ll place it in the stream 
And watch the course you seek

    The free spirit portrayed in this work inspires me to follow my heart, even when the "course" is winding and the destination unknown. This poem moved me, Laurie. Very nice!

    Beautiful write. Such lovely imagery and so tenderly written. It is so hard to lose someone you truly love. This piece makes me sad but it is so beautifully done from the soul of a very gifted writer. Smiles from Lolita

    Oh Laurie....I almost missed this, how beautiful this is. I am so sorry if this is a true experience , a painful loss of someone you deeply cared about. Yet so tender, and heartfelt, and lovely yet sad...all those things in this amazingly beautiful poem. What a wonderful piece of poetry....another of yours I want to print out and keep to read again and again. Lovya back twofold
