Eyes Closed

                                           Eyes Closed

                            three little breaths from his mouth
                              eyes closed   peace now reigns
                                     home now   in heaven

    Anne, ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. apoetdestroyer@yahoo.com :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    This is how Wayne left...just those breaths that then ceased. Hope you are doing well...I think of you often. And yes..Valentines is just not the same anymore. Still send prayers your way !!!

    BEAUTIFUL! We think in similar manner look at my "Little Angel" The little girl’s soul Unfolded her ethereal wings And soared to heavens Thus making them richer By one angel! Was written for my little sister who died in my hands. MERRY CHRISTMAS and many hugs! I love your writing!

    Those final breaths have got to be the hardest to witness... this brings back memories of my own but yes, there is so much comfort to be drawn from knowing that they are Home.

    It's sad yet peaceful. It would be good to die this way, seemingly painless. I like this, Anne.

    now this is poetry at its finest...a few lines wrapped up in flowery wrapping paper and a pink bowed tied nieatly by the universe....i just can't do this...say so much with such few words...perhaps being verbose is my problem.....this lady is one of a very few who touch my heart in a special way, and one of them is VERY SPECIAL to me...cudoes girl! PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~
