Gone

We had coffee at Williams this morning.

I saw a man
while out today
who looked like one
who went away.
So far away
So far away
I thought of that dear man today.
He's gone you know,
he won't be back
and in my life
I feel the lack.

In memory of a good friend and neighbour, Fraser Thatcher.  Well and truly missed.

  4. It's kind of a shock to see someone who looks like someone else, who you know you can't be seeing, isn't it? Been there. Nicely said.

  5. I can hear this so eloquently with a sad acoustic guitar. I'm so sorry for your friend.

  6. I know that feeling, Delores. They have gone away, and I feel the lack and always will.

  8. Lovely little poem, although I have to say I've never missed any of my neighbours after moving away.

  9. Such emotion in this one Delores, I recognize that feel when someone reminds you of a loved one you lost.
