I watched your smile

twinkling on the seas

I heard your laughter

rustling in the trees

I heard your voice whisper

0n the evening breeze

I saw your image

dancing in the leaves

I felt you everywhere

gifting me with memories

comforting me with peace.

    Honestly, I’ve read it several times and I feel like its a heart song. Gonna share.

    Quite lovely Shawn but until that stage it’s agony and mostly all you do is wish the person back with you.

    I love this because it feels like such a intimate moment, one that no-one else would know has existed. Beautiful words. 🙂

    Shawn you are amazing I was wondering how you manage to reach so many with your thoughts and words.

    That is beautiful. We are so lucky to have wonderful memories of loved ones 🙂

  12. This is beautiful, Shawn, timely for me, as my Mom passed away over two years ago and her birthday is at the end of this month..a perfect poem for those we’ve lost…
    and this is completely “random” but, I also wondered if I said or did something to offend you because I haven’t seen you around my blog in awhile…just thought I’d check in with you. 🙂 Take care, Lauren

    • Hi Lauren, I hope the words have been soothing for you in this month of memories.
      No offence taken! You must not have been posting any poetry lately. I tend to check in with poetry on the reader. I follow a lot of blogs, and I’m doing a masters, working full time, re-connecting with my harp, and working on three writing projects. There’s only so much time in a day! 😉 lol

      • Yes, they have and I’m so glad I didn’t offend you in any way. I know time is the culprit for many of us and it sounds like your plate is full beyond words! I posted five poems in May and my post on June 1st was more of a fun discussion about blogging, not poetry…anyway, I’m having issues with WP that are giving me a headache and maybe mine aren’t showing up. Who knows? Good luck with all of your projects, wow! I can’t keep up with all the blogs I follow either, along with work, family, dog, my blog and now working on my second book. So I completely understand. Thanks so much for giving me peace of mind, though and take care. 🙂

      • lol. I’ll make a point of stopping in later in the week!

      • Whenever you have time, thanks! 🙂

  13. That’s just as it should be when you grieve someone you love. Well done and I’m reblogging.
