Carved Out Of Stone - Poem by michelle dodd

carved out of stone
i held it in my hand once
so soft and smooth
it reminded me of peace
found it that spring
when everything was so blissful
down in the waterbed
next to our place
it caught your eye
like it called for you to pick it up
said it was majestic at first glance
reminded you of our free spirit
going to be a pendant
to keep a memory forever
i come back to our place
always alone
remembering those long talks
we planned so many things
never thought it would just end
ripped away so violently
i feel your presence when i am here
your hand in mine
tears once filled my eyes
our goodbyes never spoken
searching away for one last embrace
i will meet you here
in the solace of this memory
bound together in this life and next
to see you on the other side
the waters are cold
pushing against my frail frame
thinking about us again
urged to turn around
walking back out to the dry banks
almost collapsing at the thought
leaving this world to be in yours
its not my time
a constant hurt that will not go
but this place here
it can not follow
closing my eyes i almost see you
i have to go now
before i change my mind
carrying it with me always
the memories do not fade
i hold it now
carved out of stone
