Gone

As I remember

you,

you are there.

 

As I search for

you,

your name is there.

 

As I seek to find

you,

your shadow has been cast away

 

As I sit waiting for

you,

the wind is all who greets me

 

As I call your name,

you

do not respond, but the leaves rattle.

 

As the tears roll down my cheeks,

I

am soothed by the birds’ songs

 

I am moved with awe as

I

watch the clouds tell a story.

 

When you left,

I

feared I would forget.

 

Now that you are gone, I am reminded of

you

everywhere I look.

 

You

are not gone.

 

You

live here.
