Poem – Untitled

DSCF4893 copy


Are you up there
looking down?

What do you see
through pure eyes,

pushed back from the
experiences and beyond

the cancer?


I wish to hear
your voice, the

voice that lifted
me through childhood.


I pause to catch
the next breath

and with closed
eyes think of you.

  1. This is so close to my heart! Beautiful!


    1. Thank you so much. It was one of those pieces where I thought of something, wrote it, and said done. No editing, raw, and from the heart.


  2. Very beautifully expressed emotions.
