You Did Not Go - Poem by Missy Lynn

I saw you yesterday standing on sandy seashore
You turned away
I spoke but there was no response
All I saw were archangel wings
And the face of someone I used to know
I heard you laugh yesterday in a crowd
But I looked to see a stranger
I pondered and knew that you were there
Laughing
You did not go
I felt a presence yesterday in bed before sleep
You soul was helping g me drift
An angel there was signing me to slumber
There was a song I heard yesterday,
That reminded me of you,
And your loving presence shone
I know you are still here
You did not go
