A universe now altered
since your presence
in everywhere I look
and everything I feel
It’s as though you’re still very real
and yet, it’s your image
that will follow me
I’ve tucked the love
that once held your eyes
inside my aching heart
and I haven’t forgotten
your charming smile
I’ll carry them both for awhile
Don’t worry about me
I promise not to break
I’ll miss you, terribly,
but staying close
would be our mistake
When my emotions
I’ll set you free
and you can look back

“inside my aching heart” But it seems you have a degree of acceptance and will heal in time.
Yes, I do, but no worries, Carl, this is only fiction; not true to my life~thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Lauren, the photograph, the words, my eyes well with tears as I write you. Remembering my daughter. Virginia

I like the way you marked this fiction so we wouldn’t be concerned about you and your hubby. I just wish more partings could end this way …
Thanks, Sandra, I thought it would be a good idea and I agree with you. It would be nice if more partings could be friendly~

I love the promise not to break.
Thanks, Red, I like that, too, and when love doesn’t last, that factor is most important…so we don’t crumble over heartbreak, but somehow, manage to move forward~xoxo
Loving and letting go … love doesn’t end there. Very beautiful, Lauren. Although fiction it seems very personal.
Thanks so much, Diane, for your lovely comment and I’m so sorry for taking long to reply! xx
