A Promise Kept - Poem by GAYLE ANNE GOFF

You've been gone now
too long.
Less often come the tears.

I still carry a little fear to
be alone.
My heart is still broken.
You had made me a
promise, to take a carriage
ride through Central Park.

So today I'll keep your promise.
And we'll take that carriage
ride.
Two year to the day of
the day we took our wedding
vows.

I'll carry your memory next
to my heart.
You; ll sit next to me upon
the aged old leather seat.

I''ll snuggle under neath
the warm fur wrap.
And I'll close my eyes and
imagine you next to me.

I can smell a faint smell
of your favorite cologne.
It lasts just a second.

Now I'm not feeling so alone.
As I look out to the now bare trees.
It looks as if God has dipped
them in white chocolate.

The green grass is now covered
in a white velvet carpet too far for
the eye to see.

The mountain high evergreen
trees look as if their dressed
for Christmas.

With the soft white garland.
The lamp posts, now wear
White top hats.

All you can hear are the hoofs
of the horses, against the
snow covered worn path

The sky is covered with
its winter clouds.
For our ride is coming
to an end.

I tell you I still love you.
But now I must send your
memory back to heaven
on the wings of a white dove.

With a lot more love, and a lot
less fear.

''GOOD-BYE MY LOVE''
