You Left, You Remain

You left

you remain

matter matters not

spirits staked claim

sunset days

I dream of heyday

first love’s

staying power

we connected

without knowhow

diverse natures

yet kindred

I speculate over

What could’ve been(s)

Wistful sad

Yet glad

Connect we did

Fledglings diffident

Love’s sapling

Fragile tensile

Evergreen, not


as you lay between

life and death

fighting for each breath, you

felt my grieving presence

even though physically

you were almost gone

why do I remember

feel pain now

you left

you remain


Tell us your thoughts
