Forget Me Not - Poem by Renee Russon

The glittering Spring Sunlight shimmers through the branches
As he kneels down he glances
With darkening eyes
How could this happen
What is the cost?
Emptiness in solitude
Heartbreak and loss
Praying for guidance for the move he will make
To an uncertain world of distance
A price to forsake
Taking a moment, he loses himself
To a time of a mother's love
Sweet, Infinitum
The eternal dove
Darkness descends like a heavy cloak
The reality of the moment strikes an awkward discord
It really is the end
Except for a small blue and white flower
Reaching up to catch the eye
A Forget Me Not
To help him to remember
He rises from his bended knee
His heart now warm
So let it be

    Such an intensely and tender portrayal of deep sadness reflecting the death of a son's mother. You have a very delicate compassion for others and it fully blossoms in your poem. Your words hit my heart powerfully, making me remember my own parents death and the total devastation and abandonment felt back then. Thank you so much for this very moving and gentle poem, it brought tears to my eyes and heart. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Powerfully, and beautifully sad, as the passion expressed in this work, holds no barriers...You sskillfully and eloquently inject the element of poetic pathos, and because so...the impact of your storyline hits its mark...Solid structural movement throughout...What more to say but, stellar crafting, and keep that pen pumping ~FjR~ (Report) Reply
