Never Gone Forever

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

They just don't show up anymore.
One day they're here, the next they're gone.
Another anonymous empty chair where they last sat.
Why do they go away?

I look over to where they sat and reminisce.
I catch my breath as a glimpse of their memory flashes before me.
Isn't it mystical the way the sun sparkles and the wind whispers their name?
I know their kind spirit will awaken my mind for as long as it lives within me.

I know they're still around, in you and in me.
Although they left too early we continue to remember them even though they’re on the other side of eternity. Their memory lives on within us as we celebrate another day. I am comforted that one day we should meet again holding onto hope to find their spirit walking the streets of gold.

And I am glad our hearts and paths crossed in this lifetime, on this time line.
I am thrilled each time I think of them and to know I am stronger for having known them. God speed until we meet again.
