departed

i am lost

like a shadow 
on a moonless night
you are gone

my mind
stirs like a summer breeze
twirling thoughts of you
as i long for relief

if only you could come back

my heart
beats fast
like quickened steps
on paved walks at night
in search of you

my soul
reaches like a flower
ready to drink the rain
it thirsts for you

the child in me
the adult i have become
each miss you the same

    Good therapy, indeed... (sighs). Just lost a dear friend and feeling just like you once... Thank you for lending your words and soul to cry out the pain... It's so difficult to express oneself in such situations; You are blessed! Love, Hanitra

    Thank you Arild...i spent much time with my grandparents as a small child and they passed on when i was young...my parents and brother have now passed on as well...my muse often writes of death, pain, or darkness! Good therapy i guess....
