Goodbyes are never easy,

for they pierce so very deep

The eyes are a window to the soul,

and the soul begins to weep.

The tears spill down…

the sobs escape.

For your ever presence,

my heart just aches.

Out, my arms reach,

but there is nothing there.

They come up empty…

into a void, I stare.

When will we meet again?

I know not how long.

In my heart, you remain…

in peace, journey on.

-Amanda Almond, October, 2017.  Written for my sweet babies as they wave goodbye to their grandparents.
