In Search Of You (Poem)

*This is my last entry for the Write28Days Challenge. THANK YOU so much for following, reading and commenting! 

 

I can feel your touches

through the gentle breeze

the warmth of them

as my skin radiates in the sun

 

The mist hides your face

or perhaps it is the tears

that fall for you

 

This ache in my chest

unrelenting

 

My eyes linger on the brown earth

where there were once two shadows

wholly entwined

but now there is one

 

My love, oh my love

how my eyes have searched the heavens

just for a glimpse

of you

 

One more time

one more

 

 

(I dedicate this poem to my first husband, Aaron, though he may be gone over twenty years now, I still miss him.  God rest his soul)

Even After All These Years (a day of remembrance)

Even after 22 years, today’s date still affects me.

The day my first husband died.

Even though I’ve gone on with my life…

with a family of my own…

You are still with me.

In memory.

And in spirit.

Even after all these years

I’m still filled with regrets and pain

mainly for the way I acted, and treated you.

There are days when I still wished I could go back

and change those things

even just to say I’m sorry

but…

here I am still in mourning and missing you

and regretting how I’ve treated you

and wishing I could take it all back.

Even today, after all these years.

#1 Reason Why We Should Record Our Lives

This quote says it best:

“The unrecorded past is none other than our old friend, the tree in the primeval forest which fell without being heard.” –Barbara W. Tuchman

Who wants to go through this life, and then pass on without being remembered?  I don’t think anyone desires to be forgotten.  What better way to carry on your legacy than to leave a written record of your time on this world?

 

What about you?  How does this quote speak to you?
