Far Away


Heartstring Eulogies

“Darling, if you miss me, listen to the wind.
I will always be there to remind you
how much I love you.”

My darling, whenever you feel lost, look up at the stars twinkling in the night sky. Whenever you feel sad, go dance in the rain. Whenever you feel as though your heart is breaking all over again, just remember, I’m never far away. I’m always with you. Whenever you miss me, just listen to the wind. I will always be there to kiss you on the cheek and remind you how much I love you. No matter what the future brings, I will always be with you.

Even if death tries to separate us, I will never be gone. I will live in your memories. I will live in your dreams. And I will never be far away.

OpenLinkNight #258


Hello Poets and Welcome to Open Link Night here at dVerse

Linda here, I will be hosting tonight, and serving up any beverage of your choice.

This is your opportunity to share one poem, old or new with us. There is no specific theme but if you wish to, you can respond to a prompt you may have missed earlier in the week.


Writing and reading poetry has always been meditative for me. I get lost in the words, and before I know it hours have drifted by. There are days I am rushing to get dinner on the table and the laundry done because I have spent all day in another world.

The same happens when I am observing nature. A peace settles within my bones and I can watch birds at the feeders, and hummingbirds dancing in the air. Then, I am startled from my reverie…

Seed in my Womb

Love these words…

Charmed Chaos

Naive thoughts adrift on a sea of longing
in tender innocence of youth written
about love; first, lost, last and forever
and all the conflicting feelings between
for I thought I understood life
and its deeper meaning.

Looking back at those childish rhymes,
poetry was but a seed in my womb
with established roots many years ago
watered with tears from life’s wounds.

Digging deeper and deeper down
it transformed the words of youth
into a vivid flourishing garden,
where the aged poet wanders, and
is born again under the luminous spell
of a gibbous autumn moon.

Sleep Walking

I see myself
sleeping walking.
I watch from a distance
me, walking away.
I see my body.
I see my hair.
I see my feet.
Wandering aimlessly
toward the water.
I shout to myself
come back, wake up
before you wander too far,
before you slip away and
disappear into the waves.
I keep walking forward.
I don’t even look back.
I have never listened to myself.

The Dress

Women Who Think Too Much by Jeanne Marie

image001 (2)

First you are young
And then you are not
The life that you own is
The life that you bought.
You can’t return it
Like a dress that’s too small
You own it, you wear it, that’s all.
You have to make it fit
My, oh my, what a mess!
It’s torn and it’s tattered
Like an old favorite dress.
Repair the torn out seam
Sew on a missing button
Because once it mattered
It’s an easy decision.
It’s your life, it’s your dress
You own it, you wear it, that’s all.

I Love You

I Love You
I love you does not mean that I will accept
your unacceptable behavior.
I love you does not mean that I will allow
you to hurt me emotionally whenever you choose.
I love you does not mean that I will let
you crush my spirit and wound my soul.
I love you does not mean that I will let you tell me
who I am or control my decisions.
I love you does not mean that I will allow you to hurt people I love.
I love you does not mean that I will not walk away from you,
if you do those things.
I have learned through God’s grace, that I can live without you,
but I cannot live without me.
