Bon Voyage


I sit here and the tears well up in me
From reading words that reach so easily
The grief that lies so close beneath my skin
That grief I feel, when parted from my kin
I think I know that there’s a better place
But I won’t know for sure ’til that I face
And sometimes thinking that, will ease my pain
Which now is fading, truly, in the main
‘Though sometimes words will bring it to the fore
And I will sit and cry again some more
Those memories and not forgotten dreams
Are trapped inside for evermore, it seems
‘Til comes the day when life will set me free
And I may find that immortality.
