Gone!

Gone! short poem

Photo by a.s.ya

My heart ached as his stopped.
As if he didn’t know,
His loss would cause me sorrow.

Like rain melting drops of snow,
He slipped from me.

I will never forget his laughter,
Precious memory that remained
But gone is his presence.

He left; I wish to be carefree,
Not know the pain I feel.
For my troubles to be taken by the wind,
As though they never knew me.

There were no final goodbyes,
No complaint, not a hint,
Warning before he died.
Instead he passed on.

I sorrow alone,
Without understanding,
My many unanswered questions,
Life goes on without him.

Gone And Departed

Gone And Departed long poem

Hearts shed people throughout life- like broken angels crossing time- in the form of lovers and loved ones. Some wake you up after they’re gone- others startle you as they depart. Lovers depart like a fife- cutting silence with great
