Sadness, depression /
In the still of the twilight
I held your hand...
it reminded me of days
when the sun would shimmer
on vanilla skin
...and swirl within the softness of
those sapphire eyes.For days upon long days
I would dance
to the trance of your laughter......but now the cherry sun has gone;
wept away, along with the animation
of your smile, a smile I could still trace
blindfolded, plucking it out from a line-up of millions...Now the world has white washed your sight,
closing their coastal lapping tides forever...Your smile, oh that sweet energy,
now reduced to plastic; an awful hollow
expressionless face, lacking life lustre,
...a mannequin likeness,
lying on a sterile stainless steel bed. ...and like so many times before
I bend to kiss you, but this time...
all I kiss is ice
_____________In my quietest of times I often wish
I could hear your laughter,
touch your smile,
One last time... michael (your brother)
This had me in tears Mr Darcy. just wow, I couldn't imagine losing my dear sister
by Maple Tree
This poem is beyond emotional and when I read this the first time, I cried. The elegant way Michael wrote this very personal poem, led me to the end, feeling love and sorrow all at the same time.
The eyes and smiles are detailed throughout and I could feel the strength and vibrant message throughout!

The words are just flowing calmly into my ears. Great
A wonderful piece sorry for your loss
by Keke Williams
I have no words. I'm simply blown away. Beautiful, real, and sad

Thank you - sometimes words are not enough. We as writers try to say what cannot be...
