Memories of You

To Uncle Derrick from his family:

For me you are both a tear and a smile,
Feelings exquisitely beautiful.
A tear so soothing to heal sadness within me,
And a smile setting my spirit free.

I would not change my sorrow for the joy of the world,
For tears cleanse my heart with understanding.
Yet I would shout my joy from the heavens to all,
For the wind to bind my love to you in thrall.

The life of the clouds is a parting and meeting,
Again a tear and a smile.
You were a gift bestowed by heaven and snatched away,
Will I ever find you again some day?

Heavy are my eyes with the wine of tears
When I remember our past together.
I see you when dreaming, and hold you in my aloneness,
You are are the dearest part of me, I smile in remembrance.

Love has opened our eyes and made us its servants,
It will grant us the blessing of patience.
And for our meeting will I wait in great anticipation,
To end the torment of this sad separation.

Thank you. I do want the poetry to be felt, and not just read. I appreciate your kind words.

Your words definitely reflect the heartfelt feelings for this one who has moved on...and the hope of a future reunion. A very fulfilling piece to read...real.
