Will.

Will.

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

My thoughts from the grave side.

"
There is that unwilling smile crafted to perfection,
They mean well of course but time and place,
No meaning as the sun touches the torn earth,
This space will forever be marked now the case.

The mind drifts you see to sentiment and memory,
Never far but enough to guide in happiness,
Marred by death and an unwilling spirit that's you,
Oh safe no more plausible than is greatness.

Rings bound us in faith and love made a prison,
For which escape had no essence in life times still,
That smile again as those mourners stare on,
Will forever be a down fall my dear sweet Will.

Gone to a better place, I very much doubt it,
There is no better place than by my side,
Emotions ebb and flow they tell me such knowledge!
Can leave as you have left gone and died.

Lovely, yet sad and honest, heary felt...emotioms that most of us want to either never experience or delay as long as possible. Lovely work.

Well explained. I like the pictures you made, like when you said, "The touches the torn earth," and the third stanza was my favorite! Keep up the great work!

A great work of love and sadness. Structured, it show the care and time it must have taken to compose and running throughout is emotion. I particularly loved the lines "Gone to better place, I very much doubt it, There is no better place than by my side."

Indeed it certainly could be thank you.
This is a stark and difficult portrait of grief -- I know not your personal life and if this is a personal loss, and if so, my condolences. The most powerful lines of the piece, in my opinion, are found in the last stanza -- there is no better place than at your side, and when someone dies young, for sure, it feels like they have left you. A very beautiful and achingly real poem.
