This poem was written for the Kreative Kue challenge, see the link below:
I think that it is such a great picture, evocative and poignant. I hope my poem does this picture justice.
I took a picture of you,
Standing in the sea,
the water lapping at your feet,
as you smiled up at me.
Those days were simply perfect,
Though we didn’t know it then,
That life, as often happens,
Would change and change again.
Not long after the picture was taken,
I said farewell to you,
I watched you sail from my life
I cried for a week or two.
That seems a lifetime ago,
In many ways it was,
Our lives have drifted far apart,
And I’m to blame, because,
I left those words unspoken,
I didn’t tell you how I felt,
And that’s why our lives were broken
By the bitter hand, fate dealt.
Each and every day I wander,
By the water’s edge, I lurk,
Gazing at the sea that took you
Into the darkness and the murk.
It’s here I took a picture of you,
Standing in that sea,
How I wish that here and now,
You were smiling next to me.
