Loved Ones who are gone but not Forgotten

These are a few poems written for loved ones who are now no longer with us.


i sit in the room
waiting for the diagnosis
i hear the door open
in comes the doctor
he starts with a chipper hello
then gives me the news
we are sorry to tell you
what do you mean sorry
what in the hell do you
have to be sorry for
we have to take your other leg
oh the hell you are
i need that leg
are you telling me
you have exhausted all
other medical treatment
if you take my leg
you are taking another piece of my soul
and i can't have that
i'm barely holding onto what i have now
they walk away
and leave me alone
with the memory of the legs
i once had, once upon a time

Best Friend

my heart aches
at the thought
of not seeing you again
i wanted you healed
and it came
but i will still miss you
my best friend

My beloved Grandmother

no one will ever understand
what you mean
mere words will not describe it
i love you more than love itself
i would give you my first and last
and now you’re gone
and i will miss you dearly
when you left you took
a part of my heart
and the part will return
when i see you again
i hope to see you soon
but until then
i love you and miss you

We can honor and keep those gone alive by deliberately incorporating aspects of themselves we most loved into ourselves...
