I feel your essence all around me
And though I command my heart be still
As shape shifting shadows dance across my path
In your image
And the song of the incoming tide bears your voice
I see you, hear you everywhere and yet… And yet
Dare I
Should I
Can I say it, Acknowledge it,
accept you are gone,
from this place
Without you, HERE …
I remain

by Susan Louise Davis
