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 08.02.2019 Sun :) - A-L Andresen :) Copyright © All Rights Reserved I died a little inside : Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Silent One 1st place in the contest Poem of the Day 09.02.219

I felt this on a deeply personal level, as I have felt windswept by the passing of a loved one. I think that’s why this poem is so relatable, it’s something that many of us have felt...albeit, in our own ways. Simply beautiful...

This is so poignant and beautiful, Anne-Lise - love it! Have you seen the "Best New Poem" List? My poem "Soft the Bells" is right after this one, and is amazingly similar, (and I did NOT read this one until now) ... we must have been hit by the same lightning bolt, lol!! And ending up next to each other on a list - what are the odds?? There must be a reason ... I don't believe these things just "happen", (made the hair on my arms stand). Fav-ing this gorgeous write! Blessings! :-) <3

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.
