Afternoon Remembrance

As I lay on this blanket
In late afternoon
Growing shadows move
And cover my body
I feel cold
And shiver at the breeze
However light it may be

I wish he were here still
For there are questions
And thoughts I would share
Of a future unknown

Oh the comfort of an embrace
The warmth, the safety
The encouragement holding a hand brings

Untrodden paths of thought
To wander down
With a thinker
A poet, a friend

One who holds dear your dreams
One to inspire your endeavors
One to share in your adventures

The bell tolls five
I gather my thoughts
My things

I walk away and remember
The embrace
The smiles
The laughs

My beautiful girlfriend wrote this poem last week and asked if I would share it on ‘The Story Movement’. I really hope you enjoy it. It has been a great encouragement to me all throughout this past week. I’m really proud of her, and she is by far my favorite poet!

I write poetry and take crazy pictures in an Orange Chair all over the United States while reading amazing books.
