A Poem by YouoweYoupay

I only they could see what I have seen


Your hand
I can feel its touch
Certain as heartbeats
Warm like the summer rain

I’m not afraid but sometimes,
I hear them give a name
To the promised garden 
Where we will meet
Death, they say

But the name sheds its meaning
When I hear from you
Every once in a while

They would not have invented
These morbid words
If they could see
What I have seen

Your face in the palm
Of a sunflower
Your smile
An emblem
Of tranquility
Under His Protection

Oh my dear friend, how I miss you so!

This piece only served to remind me how death is nothing something to be feared, but something to find beautifully poetic. It is a new chapter to a predestined story, and I really felt that captured here in your words. You've always been wonderful at that, and this piece itself was no exception. Well done! I hope to hear from you soon.

This is an amazing piece, truly breathtaking. The visuals are just mind blowing and the flow of the poem just adds so much more to it. Death definitely isn’t the end, there’s so much more. I would pick a favorite line but I genuinely can’t. It’s all amazing, thank you so much for sharing.

This is so touching and I believe as you, you just know the truth and it doesn’t matter what anyone else believes, you feel and see them in so many ways. Death is not the end. Very well written!
