I walk the streets

Blinded by all there is to see

Your spot beside me still empty

But I still hear your whispers in the wind

Your words warm my heart as I walk aimlessly into the night

I wonder what you’re thinking

What part of the world you’ve been assigned to

How you are being treated by the strangers you have to protect

If you wonder if I’ll still be here when you are lucky enough to come home

I hear your whispers in the wind telling me that you love me

and you’ll soon be home to stay

The stars are shining brightly leading me on my way

To the place we call home

Where I wait for your safe return each and every day

I await the moment when your whispers in the wind

are replaced by your warm and tender voice

and the spot beside me is filled by you

My Poem of the Day

(08/09/24)

Good-Bye Geri

Geri Randolph

Good-Bye Geri

I will miss you

My heart will hold a space for you

You go with him now

As he holds the gates open

Awaiting your arrival

Your job here is done

You’ve been an amazing mother

To your children

And to others that were not your own

You suffered deeply ailing from disease

No more agony

No more torment

Peace has now found you

And will deliver you unto the lord

All of us here will remember

All you’ve done

All you’ve been through

All you’ve meant to so many

Your only job now is to find

never-ending peace

Worry not for us

As we know with you watching down on us

All will be right with the world

We may have lost you here

But god has gained another Angel

Spread your wings and fly about the heavens

With eternal love and admiration

Your friend

Felina


Good-Bye Geri
