A Poem by MOON

What shall I write dear Aunt

A bouquet of love roses to plant

An endless summer, a bird of song

The thought of home and where I belong


The spirit undying holding my hand

Telling me life is magic it is grand

Every departure my world emptying out

Still you guide me throughout


The things I carry my beating heart

Pieces of wisdom fragments of art

There is an honour in knowing you

A beauty a soul accrues


In the dying of your light

Your spirit in dazzling flight

Your poem is a touching tribute to the power of love and the importance of family. The use of imagery, such as the "bouquet of love roses" and "bird of song," creates a sense of warmth and intimacy that draws the reader in. The final lines, with their focus on the speaker's aunt and the impact she has had on their life, add a layer of emotional depth and resonance to the poem, inviting readers to reflect on the ways in which our loved ones shape and inspire us. You have a gift for using language to evoke strong emotional responses and create immersive sensory experiences. Keep up the great work!

Sometimes adult relatives can be surrogate parents or valued counselors. The subject of this poem appears to have played that role for the speaker. I get the impression a mainstay of life has been dislodged. May her memory continue to guide.
