Send me a cloud tonight,
Not made of moisture
But a cloud of fireflies
To flicker near to me
At midnight I will come
To sit out on the wall to wait
And a breeze will blow lightly
As the humidity fills the air
And I will say hello once more
My sweet friend.
Send me a thousand stars
The twinkle in the night
We will sit quietly and smile
Remembering days like this
Not so long ago,
Nights when you woke me to see
The beauty of the universe
And we just sat there amazed,
Not knowing then the gifts you gave
Nights of autumn filled
With love and light.
I will reach out and close my eyes
Touching the softness of your hair
And I will lean on you
Tired from sleep
But alive in the dream
I will speak your name to the night
And know that another day did not pass,
That I am here now as I may have not been then,
But that I am here
Filled in my head
Thoughts of loving
Thoughts of missing you.
My infinite Zip,
The anniversary of goodbye
And firefly skies and stars
To say hello again my friend.
As the years move on, the sadness moves to melancholy, at peace with your passing, learning still the gifts you gave. Thanks Zip.

So lovely to meet you, Kim. Fawn has excellent taste in friends 🙂 How wonderful for you – to rekindle your passion. Congratulations with the publishing – it doesn’t surprise me, from what I’ve read of your writing – it’s quite spectacular and publishing-worthy. Your words should be shared.
