Lasting

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

for friendship is a cherished gift
it lifts, enriches, outlives time
.
when death destroyed your beating heart
it cast a shadow over mine
.
this morning as i sipped on tea
i swear i saw you wave at me

So touching piece this one, I just loved it. Friendship is a precious gift to treasure and cherish. Once a bond is created it remains with us forever. And no word can describe the void that lingers in our hearts when we lose that friend. I am quite touched by this.

Oh this is so vivid, it punched me in the gut! I sensed how time heals our grief but somewhere within, the undercurrent of missing them is so alive and a little breeze or anything in the moment brings them back as if they're there right in front of us. Dear Chris, this poem of few words had a very powerful effect on me!

I am also sure you saw that wave
And she wouldn't be waving if she didn't want you knowing she is ok.
I love when I can feel another's writing
Like this

This takes a certain belief to feel

I can swear with You too dear Chirs, as I believe like You do... just because they left to the other side it doesn't mean that they don't connect with us, they do in their own spiritual ways, some people are aware of that, others are not. I'm sorry for Your loss, still Your poem evokes warm feelings of love and tranquility.

Nicely written Chris and again this is where short form Poetry scores everytime, leaving the reader to 'fill in the gaps'. Excellent use of half-rhyme as well.

This is so beautiful. Friends are so hard to come by. I love the following definition of a friend:
A friend is someone who knows all there is to know about you and likes you anyway.

Take care -- Dave

"when death destroyed your beating heart
it cast a shadow over mine"- Such a thief, death. Such a thief, life too, at times. Really enjoyed this short piece...but with impact.
