Poppy rest in peace

Stand still
And breathe
It'll pass
This emptiness
And loss

Life's lived
Life ends

In this moment
Are hidden

Stand still
Breathe deep
And say

When my tears dry
Memories of you
Will ease this pain
Rest in peace

Red Marigold with rain drops

Water drops
Glistening spheres
Onto shimmering

You're home
I've been waiting

You open your mouth to speak,
Which turns into a wide yawn
Then you stretch into an arch

You're home
I’ve been waiting

While waiting and listening out
You're eyes drifted closed
And you curled up to sleep

I just dozed
For a little while
Until you came home

You were listening out
For the sound of footsteps
For the keys rattling

Welcome home!

You greet me
Rolling over at my feet
Fur rubbing across the carpet

As we remember them
Wind rustles the leaves
As we remember them
Light wakens in the sky
As those words are spoken
We remember them
