A POEM by Tela Louise Baxter

You’re not alone in the pages of this story ..
my broken heart is evidence of that
I fold the corner to mark the day
a day so haunting
the day you went away
I had to close the book for now
time for grieving I’m told
I’ve been to where are
it’s a secret that I hold
I understand the humans that cry because they miss you so
Instead I’ll rejoice in silence for your burdens are no more
now I see you flying
for that I am sure
stopping now and then
gently tapping shoulders
of ones who need it more
