Spirits In The Wind

by Mark   Sep 13, 2017

At times I think; those whom overcome with sadness
Overbeared by an unshakable heaviness in their soul
Haunted by one shadowing and relentless thought
To end their body, mind and existence here on earth,
Actually live on in spirit, drifting within the winds
Carressing those who mourned their untimely passing.

I wonder if after the deed was done and spirit separated
Was the immense sorrow of loved ones lingering,
Resounding around their spirit like a ring around a planet.
Circularly rotating; the bitter taste of a mothers tears
Currents of mourning waves from the memorial,
Compelled by remourse to return and comfort those left behind.

A breeze to such a spirit; a haze of misty darkness
Drifting through doubts and what could have been
What was lost and never to be again,
To linger and flow until all have passed on.
I sense it sometimes in my internal quietness
A companion gone in teenage years whispering,
Through a hush; I miss you my friend.

I feel that someday the same fate awaits me
How close I have come to drifting in that windy haze
To again be near my lost friend, away from this pain
Yet I envisage the misery anguishing in the hearts,
Of those whom bonds I have forged
And I realize for now, the winds are free from me.
