Greg Davidson Poems
Mourning, Forbidding A Valediction
He still remains.
Do not say that he is gone.
His memory lives within your mind
As long as thought remains,
His spirit lives within your heart
As long as life sustains.
Mourn, but do not mourn for long.
Mourn for the future times not shared.
These things are not true, not real,
But only dreams of what might have been,
So do not mourn for long.
Mourn, but remember too,
The love he had for all of you,
The joys you shared, his smile,
His wisdom and compassion.
For these things are both real and true.
He is not gone,
Upon A Dismal Day
My love is as the greying winter skies,
That clouds my eyes,
To all but she who stands before me now.
And sighs from deep within,
I despise the time when I must leave you.
Alas, again, adieu.
