Gone But Not Forgotten

Here I hold the memories of your elegance and grace, reminded of all the time we had together, and how you have come to leave this place. See the world hasn’t changed much it still looks and feels the same, the only difference is that I no longer thru out the day have the blessing of calling out your name. I have sighed and cried in disbelief knowing that this battle we have finally lost, but its only for a minute because I come back to the reality of this pain and think what will be the futures cost. I had much to learn from you and I don’t believe that I actually learned it all, but the one thing that I do know and remember is that you told me to always continue to stand tall. You would say, ”When all is hope is lost and time seems to freeze, just be patient my child and allow your mind to come to ease. Listen to the sounds around you and the beatings of your heart, because this is what you now will have to follow because it will play the most intricate part. Allow your wings to spread and your feet to leave the ground and know that glory is now the new place that your life is bound. Yes I remember it just like it was yesterday, the sounds of your words never went away that gloomy day in the month of May. So Ill continue to hold what we did have, the memories of us smiling, walking, and talking together and the awkward things that made us laugh. If you promise to do one thing for me and that’s be here by my side each day, I know it cant be physical but I just want you to watch over me because that’s what ill say, every night before I lay my head down when I pray. May your soul take it’s the eternal rest there by God’s throne, for you are now at ease in a place we call heavenly home.

-Eddie Rod.

    A very loving and sad poem, I can feel the pain as I read it. But, knowing that, that person is with God gives so much satisfaction to the heart. Good luck and keep writing. Lynn
