In honor of all the love that surrounds Valentine’s Day celebrations this week, here is a poem I wrote for three loves of mine who have gone away but will never be forgotten (sorry Lisa, my poetry teacher from school days, but this one does rhyme).
I wish you didn’t have to go,
Because I truly loved you so;
But I’m blessed because I’ll always know,
I once had an angel walking beside me.
Now your face I can only see,
When I close my eyes and think back to what used to be;
But I know you’re still walking alongside of me,
It’s just that now you’re locked away in my memory;
And I smile at those times that I wish could still be.
