out like a candle in a gust of wind there then not gone taken from me replaced by a gaping silence a faded memory a heartache throbbing refusing to heal i try to remember the tone of your voice of your laughter barely audible it’s there in the distance out of reach a million light years away and i trapped on my side alone in this realm disconnected i now rush to accomplish all that i must so i may join you some day in eternity Posted on December 2, 2020

Line, as so often happens, our deepest pain births feelings and expressions until this moment unreached and unfelt. I'll speak for those who have admired your poems and appreciated your loving comments to us. You are not alone. Thank you for these new poems reflecting your grief and love...love you
