Clifftop Bluebells,  Rumps Peninsula, Cornwall


A windswept bluebell I am
even though the sun is high in the sky
The wind ruffled the hair
my skin would slowly freeze like mosaic
Want to paint the picture with beautiful thoughts
but difficult to find the rainbow


Tears, so many tears
my heart ripped apart
The pain took a different form
Your sobbing lungs needed a new life


Lung cancer with spread to the lymphs
You were so weak, like a bluebell in the wind
Suddenly it is not a matter of course to get old anymore
Death did not come abruptly or surprisingly
But it was quite overwhelming when it became a reality


Tears, so many tears
my heart ripped apart
I died a little inside
although I will always carry you in my heart


The blue lights are gone now
I have chosen a place near the coast
You loved this place
No exhaust smell or busy people
In the natural cycle your ashes will be spread in the wind


While the birds flying towards the horizon
Nothing can fill the emptiness I feel
From life to death, the road is so short
Rest in peace, I loved you dearly


Tears, so many tears
my heart ripped apart
A simple bluebell is left alone
The clock chimes inaudibly

Oh, dear, I missed your poem of the day earlier. So happy to learn this deeply touching poem was also honored with a first-place win! In 2003 and 2005, I lost two best friends to cancer and you describe the feelings of one left behind perfectly, Hon. Congratulations! Hugs, Carolyn

Incredible. I love how Dovecote Hill can be the place I grew up and loved. I see a place suspended in my mind, a place one wishes he could spend the rest of his days in.

Wow, great metaphor, but bluebell. So many die from this disease; it's heart wrenching, as your poem describes.
