Today’s Daily Post prompt. Now I really must get on with some work…


The room is empty,

The night is still,

Cold sheets unwrinkled,

Vixen cries shrill.

Sleep won’t come,

All night and day,

I hear your steps,

As you walked away.

The reason forgotten,

But your face I recall,

Among the stars,

When the shadows fall.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. When I am gone, will my shadow stay.

    Will you see me walking beside your shadow under the moon.

    Will the scent from flowers I liked remind you of me,.

    Will a gentle breeze across your face feel like a kiss from me.

    When you wear a sweater I gave you feel like a hug from me.

    When you dream will I be there, and if I am, is it really a dream,
    or could I be visiting you.

    Maybe I am just browsing through time and we will meet again one day.
