Artist's Description

Owe I am a wonderful fibber of sorts.
I can walk the straight and narrow
and tow the line at the same time.
All the while my heart is wavering.
I can even perform great feet’s of strength
lifting weights beyond my mind could even imagine.
All the while my strength is fading.
Also I can paint great works of art
both beautiful and odd.
Masterpieces!
Creativity flowing through my fingertips.
All the while my hand is missing.
And I can even go about my life
living it as though everything is fine,
wonderful beyond imagination
And never letting on that my life
is actually completely shattered without you.
And each morning as I drag myself out of bed
and attempt to clean up the broken fragments
I am reminded of just how much I miss you.
I miss your smile and your gentile quiet spirit.
Your voice was always sweet music to my ears
and the sound of it still haunts me to this day.
Your personality was entirely unique in its essence
and set apart from all others.
I miss your ever persistant questions
as I feigned irritation
over you trying to get to know me,
always probing ever deeper
because you genuinely cared about me despite our differences
which were visually apparent by any measure.
You helped me through a very dark and lonely time of my life
and by your sweet soft gestures of unconditional love
my heart began to mend.
But love to me was like a bad joke
that someone played on me too many times.
My heart was a frozen wasteland
that only the sweet summer rays of your smile could melt.
Yes you made my heart melt
and to experience love without the demands or expectations
that so often accompany it was a wonderful thing to experience.
And for those years of endless summer days
when the clouds parted for what seemed like an eternity
I began to know what true happiness really was.
But sunny weather in this life comes and goes.
And when you moved away the clouds moved in
and the rains followed
and they continue to plague me to this very day.
If it were not for my own daughter
I do not know what I would have done.
For in truth my hopes for endless summer days
were shattered when you left.
And the shinning remnants of beautiful memories
scatted across the floor
seem to take on an incredible weight
whenever I attempt to discard them.
And in truth I never will.
So I sweep them into this pile and that
so as to be careful not to trample them under foot.
Round and round they float in my mind
like tiny little jewels
bright and clear as crystal as though they happened yesterday.
They have become as a bright and shinning light to me
and the sweet memories seem to take on a life of there own
becoming both magical and wonderful to behold.
Oh how you have inspired me
and lifted me out of the depths of despair
and into a new and magical world of enchantment,
like Fairies floating on silver moonbeams
past a pitch dark world of misery and hopelessness.
My memories of you have become my dreams anew.
And so now I lift my hand with purpose
to try and create a better world for all
because I know that that’s what you would want.
And my keepsake
The last thing you ever gave me,
just a silly gesture of kindness on your part I’m sure
will shine in my heart forever.
