Goodbye (Poetry)

Red Lighted Candle

It feels so final

Overwhelmed with emotions

A piece of the puzzle is missing

A shadow lingering

 

Never greeting you again

Never seeing your smile again

Never sharing laughter together again

Never feeling your warm embrace again

 

Filled with memories of your face

Memories of so much grace

Memories of your love taking up space

Memories of your spirit reflecting the warmth of a fire place

 

Knowing that each moment is filled with a void

Longing for the smells of your cooking

Longing for the smells of your flowered perfume

Longing for the smells of your homemade remedies

 

Allowing the memories to serve as a tribute

Honored to have known you

Honored to have loved you

Honored to have been loved by you
