The Falling of Stars

Into the night I move in restless sleep
moon filters in to whisper sweet words on dreaming ears
and I feel you beside me
four years gone, you still speak.
I rise and move through darkened halls
and slip beyond into the moon lit yard,
fireflies hover in jungle gardens
and I know youโ€™ve come once more.

The streak moves through the midnight skies
and I reach out a hand to touch the memory
of days gone by and your essence that lingers
as the stars fall one by one
I call your name softly to the winds
and smile to feel a warm tingle I had never forgotten
the gentle form that leans along my side.

Ashes remain where a soul once stood
yet you tease me still with these private shows,
I inhale the jasmine that scents the shadows
and I hold out my hand one last time
bid adieu to the silent boy
as the clouds move by to block the view
and you walk away silently content,
I know you still hear my heart
that always beats for you.

  3. I love that, happily haunted….what a great concept in belief. I think the most fun is being haunted by memories we don’t remember….just bits and pieces, and like a puzzle, we put it together over a lifetime to tell the story. The creative process always amazes me, enjoying my read by the way, savoring it slowly and absorbing it like a loving little sponge๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿพ

  4. Beautiful reflections, Kim. I felt so happily haunted by a friend, by one who loved and was loved… Amazing how the presence of what has been lingers in us, even grows perhaps, and continues to amplify. We carry what where we’ve been and it truly lives on within our hearts!

  7. Even when they’re gone, they’re not….always little reminders, he was all lightning bugs and stats…..would wake me up just to drag me out to see them……to think what I’d have missed otherwise, that right there are the blessings I adore most๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜Š

  8. I thought this might be about dear Zippy! But then again….๐Ÿ˜Š It’s so hard to lose a beloved pet. Nothing quite like their presence in the family. We’ve said goodbye to two wonderful cats. I can’t imagine life without Smudge. They get us in a way others don’t. Exasperating and calming. Here’s to Zippy’s big heart! โค๏ธ
