Heather Burns


You Stepped Through


Suddenly it
happened
a journey
ended
abruptly.

An earthly
encounter
was shortened
destiny
unfulfilled.

A silver cord
stretched
beyond the
point of no
return.

An invisible
door opened
you stepped
through.

Just out of
sight
out of reach
still in my
heart you
remain.
