I'm Here...

I'm here...
Cold, wet, and sad.
You're here...
In your Sunday best
looking radiant
and peaceful.

Why am I here?...
It's way to soon
we never hugged good-bye.
Why are you here?...
You had so much
more to do
so much love to share.

How do I carry on here?...
Without your boosts
of confidence
without your cheerful
greeting everyday
without my cherished friend
to walk beside me.

Can you visit here?...
With angel wings
to hover next to me
with a soft touch
to let me know your here
with guidance
when I'm feeling lost.

I'm here...
Cold, wet tears
occupying my face.
The final good-bye,
the completion
of your circle of life.

Oh took me awhile to figure out where this was going, but oh beautiful, and what a lovely poem to submit, as a sort of a tribute.  Very lovely.  I like your new pic btw!

I thank you all for reading and replying, I wrote this after John F. Kennedy Jr. died, and I was thinking of a really good friend and how I would feel if she died.

X-Angel: Thank you for catching my typo, I appreciate.

the circle of life
I believe in it...
this is a wonderful poem...

If all was light...then I would have never learnt the dark...from which such truth evolves
from which evolves the light...
