When you parted from me
I felt uneasy
Incomprehensibly
I felt uneasy

We’d connected tentatively
Then more deeply
All too briefly
More deeply

We rode wildly,
We fell differently
You and me
Differently

Have you taken from me?
All you needed from me?
Unquestionably
All you needed from me?

What do you think when you see?
Your memories?
Playing timelessly?
In your memories?

We’re moving on freely,
Moving on differently
You and me
Differently

Since you parted from me,
I’ve felt uneasy
Instinctively
I’ve felt uneasy

Letting Go

You were born here,
And died here,
Against your will….
Hurled into this world,
And taken from it,
By an unseen hand.
But you live on
In our love.
We’re your monument,
And your epitaph.

Where you lead,
I must follow,
In my own way…
You showed me how,
To carry a burden,
To accept my fate,
To leave gracefully,
When my time has come…

At the end I was helpless…
I could not comfort you,
Or give you peace.
As it was a cup,
That could not pass from you.
At the end I was a child,
Already missing you,
Who still needed your love…
So when the fire of your spirit,
Became a flickering ember,
Your last smile,
And wave goodbye,
Meant so much.

Your final ceremony,
Was filled with tears,
But left me comforted
And inspired.
It collected,
All the sparks of your life,
Into a pure beacon,
That shone,
One last time,
And then faded away.

The Fallen Rose

We floated in the music and voices
And we held each others hand
We said how our lives and choices
Were like footprints in the sand

The whirlpool around us went round
And time stood still a while
My heart drove me on ’til I found
The words to say goodbye

When life blows everything away
There is nothing left but love
When you have nothing left to say
There is nothing left but love

Her lovely face, her giving
Her laughter and her fun
We miss her..all of us living
As we wait for our kingdom to come

On a cold damp Winter’s day
I kissed a Rose and watched it fall
On a tearful Winter’s day
We said goddbye one and all

When life blows everything away
There is nothing left but love
When this is your last today
There is nothing left but love.
