In Honor Of Alan Rickman

In Honor Of Alan Rickman short poem

Photo by icaroferracini

Remember remember remember the past,
The sparkling in our eyes with a tint of gold,
Our youth was forbidden to last,
The sorrows of the world began to unfold,

Long aching days I spent,
With red rimmed eyes,
Thoughts and images of you as I slept,
Sadly they must have been all lies,

I watched my love, love another,
As my heart breaks in two,
As you kiss him I sadly shudder,
There is nothing now I can do,

I pray to the master to keep you hidden,
Alas I know he is coming,
To go to you I am forbidden,
I say to you please start running,

Sadly you are no more,
Your death saddens me greatly,
You lay sprawled out on the floor,
Your always on my mind lately,

In my moment of dying,
In the end your son began to realize
As I start my last breath crying,
I wasn’t bad, my act was all lies,
As I looked deep into his eyes,
I saw her then it became a blur.

“After all this time? ….. Always”
