(((After The Rain)))

Rating: 3.4
I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed
And the sunrise ever warmed
With its gentle rays dancing across my skin
Giving me hints of a fluffy white cloud or two
Promising an entire new day
Of peace and contentment
A perfect day-this
But for the glaring-almost blindingly-blazing
Absence of you

Theodora, this is a beautifully heart-felt tribute to a great friend. I am so sorry for your loss. I can truly empathize with you. Earlier this year, I lost a friend through breast cancer. Like you, some of the grieving process was by writing a poem or two. Perhaps, if you are so inclined, you may like to look at my poem, Is There Dancing In Heaven?
