Good Bye, My Friend - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

A friend that I’ve known has slipped away
The obituaries rudely reveal her exit in print
Gray clouds are gathering, blocking each sun ray
as a lifetime is condensed into fading footprints

Unique qualities honor a lifetime of endeavors,
all who read the tribute will have knowledge
With a final wave, a loving tie frays and severs…
Family and friends reminisce and acknowledge

Your journey ended with a loss of hope and pain,
tears of sadness diminished into numb acceptance
For those who knew you, fond memories will remain…
Each day was brighter; your energy gave substance

Remaining in my heart is laughter and a treasured smile.
In the silence of my thoughts, I will memorize for awhile
