Meeting her
has always
been my wish,
hoping, it would
transcend from
acquaintance to
withstand time,
I waited
in eagerness
for the date,
it was all
like halley’s
it tarried,
it sure came,
but taking my
hope, innocence,
love and heart
as she passed,
leaving behind
and pain,
she didn’t stay
to help me heal.

  1. Beautifully written, such lovely words. The story seem to end with tragic sickness and an open heart ❤️. Life doesn’t always happen like we plan or time slips away before you now. What we have is NOW moments, with teachable moments of yesterday. Cherish each, but don’t get stuck. God is our healer the mender of broken hearted. Lift up your head…
