Farewell

Farewell
by Nina Spink

 

I watched you cross the room
with purpose, dimmed the light.
You pulled me in your arms
and took me, there, that night.

Confused and dazed you left me
My heart screeched out in pain
I knew then that I’d loved you
But would hold you not again.

I didn’t know

I didn’t know

by Nina Spink

Tears of loss stream from reddened eye
Tears for you that will never dry
They magnify the one within
The life inside ne’er to begin
and yet with guilt there find relief
in action taken, as by a thief

How can I keep this hurt inside
Expose the shame, nowhere to hide
It’s way too late for me to say
I’ll think on this another day
This tortured soul so full with sorrow
Wills, not today, I’ll cry tomorrow

His stares lay bare this shadow’d pain
Searching the soul with veiled disdain
And seeing in there something more
This wrestling soul, cries out before
its accuser, in torment long concealed
its dreadful secret now revealed

As night emerges into day
dark shadows now be cast away
And into light one steps anew
disfigured, naked, for self to view
No denial now as once on show
But accept the loss, I didn’t know.

My Parting Gift

by Nina Spink


If there was but one gift I could give you, it would be love.
To know it deeply, to experience it frequently, and for it to last indefinitely.

That it could not be mine would be of little import
Just to know you were taken care of would suffice.

For someone of such beautiful heart with so much love to give
Not to have it freely offered in abundance is a crime,
A source of great sadness to me.

If there was but one wish I could wish for you it would be happiness
For you not to tread the boards of regret or use the props of remorse
But instead be free of grief as you dance on the stage of life.

For someone of such integrity and talent not to be able to express oneself
With a clear and honest conscience would be a crying shame,
A cause of great anguish to me.

If there was but one characteristic I could bestow on you, it would be strength
Of character, of endurance to cope with life’s spiteful little “jokes”
and for you to laugh back as you pass through the vales of sorrows and cares

And so….

If there was but one gift I could leave you, it would be love.
To know it deeply, to experience it frequently, and for it to last indefinitely.
