Slingshot

Fiery comet.
New creation.

Thank you for the love you gave.
I will save each
Memory as gold
Hold on to them
When you are gone.

I will close my eyes and see:

You!

Up a tree
Running free but
Not too far;
Always checking where we are.
Like I’m a star and
You – a planet
Orbitting round.
Your hand it found its way, often, to sit in mine.
Fit in mine.

Time moves on.
You are gone.

From placid planet in safe rotation
To fiery comet.
New creation,
Blazing trails to far off places.

Gravity fades
And you evade the pull of traces.
No reins to tie.
You fly.

Gone.

And it’s so hard to watch you go.
Easier than breathing,
Harder that you know.
