             My wish

I wish that I could write a poem
to say just how i feel
and even though the months gone by
the pain is still too real

I wish that I could tell you something
I'd like to say good bye
but every time I write the words
it makes me want to cry

words that are so simple
yet so eloquently put
freeze upon every page I write
and are gone each time I look

how can I describe
who you were to me
some things you have to leave alone
sometimes just let things be

when I heard about you death
it caused me so much pain
and I have to go on
'cause my life still remains

I feel as if I've been swallowed
by a tsunami at sea
or is it more like mobius curve
a line that's never free

your earthly life may be over
yes, that is true
but you go on forever
through the people that loved you

so if you have the patience
and I know you do
one day I'll write the perfect poem
and it will be just for you

Slick,
You've described this pain rather well.  Thank you.  I was on this very road not long ago.  I set everything aside, knowing there was no hurry for her, and as I adjusted to it there came a time when it could be written quite naturally.  Now, interestingly enough, when I think of her, I think of that poem, every time.

Beautiful, that is all I can say.

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..
