No words to say,my heart felt cold.
I waited for tears,but nothing flowed.
No feelings to share,no anger to unfold.
I listened as her life story was quietly told.
So young,so sweet,and now she's gone.
What amazing stories she can make is now untold.
So fast to end the life she has known.
And all that was left are her memories for our hearts to hold.
And through the emptiness that fills my soul,
I remember this word that brings so much joy.
And though I know I've used it to make life full,
I wonder now what FOREVER is for.
(In memory of a truly loving person.Beautiful inside and out.Maya...gonna miss you ,cousin.)
(P.S.Posting this again for Gooseberry Garden's Poetry Picnic .It's been a year but I can still sometime feel her presence.)
