Saying Goodbye? - Poem by David Taylor

Damp in both eyes
Hesitant in breath
Heavy in heart
Blank in thought
Leaden in both feet
Wavering in voice
Dry in mouth
Low in spirit
Depleted in happiness
And then I see
That I am in your heart
And from there
I will not ever depart.

    What a delight to read. I was beginning to feel quite down until the end dissolved all that!
    Lovely piece.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
