... And When She'D Poem by Amanda Lukas

... And When She'D

Rating: 3.1

...And when she would smile
and tell me that it was okay to cry,
I'd cry in her arms and know I was loved.

... And when she let my friends come over
to paint our shoes with her expensive acrylic paints,
we'd laugh together and my friends never wanted to leave.

... And when she'd sing, I'd tell her not to,
not knowing that music was
one of the only things that could brighten her day.

... And when I dream about her,
I know she's still with me,
singing me through my nights
and brightening my days.

Patricia, you are admired.

I have to say it's a very heartfelt piece- I like the stanza structure very much.

What a beautiful poem to write. You describe all the times you had with her with such realness and warmth. This poem really touched me. The ending is lovely and so very poignant. All the best to you, Seán

It's not clear if Patricia was a friend or a relative. 'Was' it what I picked up on. You tip your hand a little by letting us know that you have to dream to still be with her. Sharing your recollections of the times you spent together demonstates how special Patricia was and still is to you. Tom
