Leaving Loved

Don’t go now
Don’t go yet
Yet you must
Yet you will
Will leave me
Will spirit hence
Hence my anger
Hence my tears
Tears for you
Tears for me
Me being selfish
Me who must let go
Go then softly
Go then gently
Gently wish farewell
Gently slip away
Away from pain
Away to him
Him who waits
Him your son
Son you lost
Son you’ll find
Find peace at last
Find peace together
Together we wait
Together we listen
Listen to your breath
Listen to your life
Life that’s leaving
Life now quiet
Quiet room
Quiet days
Days to wait
Days to share
Share the laughter
Share the memories
Memories that ache
Memories that sing
Sing the loss
Sing the love
Love is here
Love is here
Here with us
Here with you
You are loved
You are loved
Loved forever
Loved and leaving
Leaving …
Forever ….


For my Granny, for whom my world now holds it’s breath.
