Departed. Now Gone.

It was written in the clouds.

In the sway of the grasses. The chirp of the birds.

In the grasshopper in the kitchen I scooped up

to put outside. It was all there.

I saw it. Payed attention. Even when I did not want to.

I was present in all the right moments.

At every twist and turn. Dying a bit to detach again as it was 

excruciating to watch. 

All the while, the echo of pay attention

hummed in my mind. So attention I did pay.

Always. Feeling the flutter of the butterfly wings

as she passed by. Embracing the breeze as it 

caressed its way past me.

I watched. I waited. Stayed as present as I was meant to be.

You departed. I saw it. Felt it. Like a twitch.

Here. Then gone. No more goodbyes.

No more heartache or cries. You departed for the last time.

Going out with the drama you so embraced.

I thought I would not cry as tears streamed down my face.

Goodbye


This is one of those pieces that took on a life of it’s own. I have not lost anyone recently.

I debated on posting it, but I felt it was one I wanted to share. I did not want anyone reading to think I had lost someone. All is well here.

To anyone who maybe grieving the loss of a loved one, I send my humble blessings for you to find comfort.

Love and blessings, đź’• Carrie
