Welcome to my thinking out loud…



Posted on 18 December 2020 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud


I glimpse your shadow everywhere I go…

I catch your aroma on every intake of breath

I hear your whisper in every silence

I feel your touch on every breeze

I close my eyes and bring you to mind

I see your colours and your energy

Once again, I hear your wisdom and your care

The veil is thin between the worlds

I open my eyes and you are gone

No more colours, no energy, no smile

Just a whisper on the wind that blows my memories into focus

I miss you; I grieve you, and I am so blessed I knew you

I remember you, and in my heart, you still live

Now rest, and thank you for being
