A poem by Sandy Lulay


I did not think to set the moments of
Our loving onto maps I could retrieve;
Realities of losing you came too slow
And then too fast slipped into disbelief.

Silence sits between love and memories,
Pictures of you fade with every year;
Gone are the visions of faith believing
That time can heal the pain and dry my tears.

Immense hope once filled my days and day dreams.
My heart searched for your face in moon shadows
And in sun chased after your every step
Only to find the footprints of my soul...

Following winter looking for summer smiles
As snow fell, covering the miles of roads
Leaving me lost, yet still loving the child
I once knew. That child will never grow old.

I did not choose this for me or for you,
Yet unnecessary losses are all too true.
