    Dew On Death's Door

    I said goodbye.
    Tho' memory keeps you close
    for now.
    Smiles formed
    as memories spilled out
    with tears.
    Then
    tears dry
    memories fade
    and soon the dark shade of death
    blends into the grey of forgetfulness.
    Then
    I paid a visit.
    Memories rose
    laughter formed
    tears ran free like dew
    upon the cold granite stone
    and you were alive again.

    A well-written heartfelt expression of something most of us have experienced but can't put into words. You nailed it.

    this is a great poem thank you.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
