Reminiscent Tears

...in memory of a friend

Reminiscent Tears

 

Ashes to ashes

dust to dust

 

my heart lies

mortally wounded by

 

reminiscent tears.

 

 

 

 

in loving memory of Tony

A quote from Hemingway reads, "No one you love is ever truly lost." I've taken solace in those words today.

Loss of a loved one is a soul destroying thing but they are never truly lost they live in our hearts every day, your friend would be proud of this beautiful homage.

So sorry for your loss. Your words convey the rawness of the first cuts of grief. Time doesn't take it away. But it does give us perspective. Hugs

My Kelly, I am so sorry for your loss of your friend Tony. As your Hemingway quote validates, those we love are always with us. Your poignant and heart-breaking poem is the highest kind of homage to one who will always love you back.
