Best Poem of Melanie Walendowsky Baker

Too Many Goodbyes

The earth that supports
the path where I tread.
The smiles and the laughter
and you in my head.

The moments gone by,
the loss and the pain.
The power I have,
and the strength I regain.

I still hold the fear
so close to my heart,
and I am still quite aware
of what it imparts.

But to reason is foolish,
and not what I need.
There are holes in my heart
that I need to feed.

I know I can't blame you
for what you don't know,
but one thing is certain:
you shouldnt've let me go.

The smiles and the laughter
were ...

A Flight To Catch

I remember that night
it's so terribly clear.
Such wonderous delight
you and me near.

We just held on tight
as though out of fear.
But I had to fight
every single last tear.

And then in the light
saying goodbye to my dear,
I had to catch my flight
and now I wish you were here.
