Loss

For certain memories 
time stands still
and for a moment
the pain is searingly fresh
The loss makes you realize
what matters most
An aching reminder
of what it means
to truly love

Ashes

Ashes
Shattered into a billion tiny pieces
S
cattered in the wind as ripples shift
Along the vast expanse of time
Giving the illusion of super novas
Twinkling in the afterlife

Heaven

No more dances

Around the sun

She is now

Back to stardust

Bridge

Another dear friend
Crosses the misty bridge
Fog condenses into tears

Height

Height of the holidays
Picking out a Christmas tree
Fondest memories

Grief in shades of red and green
Flash between past and present

Trait taught at an tender age
Desolate playground
