Don't think I have forgotten you,
my thoughts find you in the
alleyways of my mind.
the house is dark and quiet
I awaken thinking of you.
Fragments of dreams,
I search through mingled trees
and dark forests.
I search for you.
something I have forgotten to do.
I catch a glimpse of my old self,
the sadness melting from my eyes.
I remember the passion you had
I remember lessons taught by example.
Yesterday I was but a shadow of myself,
today I step into my body
and reclaim my soul.
I heal my broken stems,
grow new leaves.
I walk among the starfish,
I skip among the stars.
because you taught me that I can.
because one day we will meet again.
I live again.
Don't think I have forgotten.
Dedicated to my parents. I miss them so much but finally I feel like I can live again without sadness being my constant companion. Meet us here, http://dversepoets.com/ where we share our thoughts and our hearts.
