Searching for You

As I made my way through the shadowy forest of doubt,
I had the most unusual dreamlike thoughts.
I stared trancelike when a herd of unicorns approached,
led by a surreal Mad Hatter seeking Alice.
In the hazy early morning light on a trail we’d traveled often,
I paused to blink, knowing the visions were ethereal.
Unicorns?  Please, this herd looked like something from a fairytale,
and I wondered if they could be anything but imaginary.
Then a familiar voice I heard.  It was yours, my love.
You reminded me to enjoy the moment, not to think so hard.
Real or unreal, it was a vision brewed by an active imagination,
one that will not rest until I find my way back to you.

Carolyn, I was thinking about you today. I miss you very much. I guess God needed another angel, but why did he have to take you? You took a piece of my heart with you when you died and thanks for leaving us your poetry to treasure. I am so happy that your last poem written was for my contest, rest in peace, dear friend, Constance

I was so sad to learn of your demise Carolyn. I write this as if you can read it, your comments on my work over the years were so heartwarming and encouraging. I am saddened by your departure but also gladdened to have been privileged to have known and interacted with you. You made this world a more wonderful place to be while you were here in it. RIP dear Carolyn :)
