Memoriam a poem by Codey


Recommended Posts


by Codey

I feel your eyes upon me

in everything I do.

There's not a minute in any day

that I don't think of you.

I feel the comfort of your love

in life's unsettled clime.

I hear you speaking to me,

in the recesses of my mind

You whisper the past is for memories

but not a place to dwell.

Trying to relive the past,

can make life a living Hell.

I can feel the distant nearness

as our souls are still entwined.

You now free to soar and swoop,

I still trapped in my earthly rind.

You free of human cares and woes

as you've moved to another plane.

I with little more to lose,

and even less to gain.

You to live with Angels

in everlasting light.

I to do battle with demons

in shadows and the darkness of night.

I know I'll have to live with the past,

my destiny in coming years.

I can only hope, when I close my eyes,

I will see you still, through my tears.

Brilliant poem.

Just remember, when you're fighting the darkness, that friends help you fight, even if you can't see 'em in the dark.

There's a fun-loving side to you too. I hope to see that in a poem or two, too.
