Give me to the summer breeze

Give me to the summer breeze

A Poem by Gee
"

One final walk together

"
It's time my love you lived again
removed the widow's black,
left sorrow for all yesterday's
invite happiness "come back"

So don a dress of pastel hues
paint a smile upon your face,
walk me for a last time dear
to my final resting place.

Take me to the highest hill
give me to the summer breeze,
to gently fall on green grass, lush,
'neath the shade of aged trees.

No tears my love enough now shed
lighten your heavy heart,
although I'm now not at your side
we'll never be apart.

And if perhaps ever the chance
come visit, reminisce,
but promise that you'll leave me with
a smile and soft blown kiss.

As it should be
A sombre piece Gee but also filled with empathy and love for another. Sadly poignant.

There was no mistaking that the one gone is being "scattered" to the summer's breeze. Such a sweet love poem from now absent to the one left behind.

I think much about death and the separation it brings yet I felt comforted by the strong thread of love woven through this poem. Its strength seemed greater than the power of death. Appreciated so much...

Thank you..
This is very solemn! It really upped the ante on its power once I realized the voice was actually that of a deceased - "removed the widow's black" I merely thought some poetic brilliance, but it wasn't until "walk me for a ......final resting place" that I realized Holy kwap! It's a dead loved one talking about saying goodbye and moving on to be happy! Fantastic! I only have a problem with understanding the first lines of the last two stanzas. I know what they're trying to say, but the wording is a bit awkward. Other than that, this is most deservedly praiseworthy. Well done!

Cheers. Like all of my scribblings this needs tidying up. Perhaps I'll get round to it when away in .. read more
Brought me to tears. I didn't expect the power of this Gee. Emotions! Classically elegant in form and rhyme-"Take me to the highest hill, give me to the summers breeze" - beautiful and heart-breaking words... "But promise that you'll leave me with a smile and soft blown kiss". Can't laud this enough. Thank you.
