Colors lost


The Earth lost all its color the day you went away
I look around and all I see are different shades of gray
If I to traveled up to space
and looked in the rear view mirror
The Earth would be as pale as the moon
Without you living here.
The forests dull, fields turning brown
All I know each day is that you're not around.
Bright orange poppies?? Amazing color you might see...
But even they look faded...
insignificant to me.
Where did the beauty go? Why can't I see it?
Why did the world fade away.
It doesn't look the same, you know
Without you here.
Everywhere I look
I see only that you are not there.
Your sparkle and luster gone from my world.
So I wait....
I can't imagine how much brighter Heaven is today
Since you took all the colors from Earth with you...
The day you went away.
Green vibrant and alive
Red full of energy
Yellow bursting with warmth and fun
Blue beautiful and endless and the sea.
All faded without you.
Now...only gray

Sal, your poetry is so eloquent and expressive. The photo you chose to accompany your words is perfect. You have so much writing talent that I never knew about. Last night I told the rest of my small group about Josh and we prayed for your healing. One day at a time - sometimes one minute at a time to get through the grief.

I know that feeling, you said it so well. So glad the pins are out. It's still hotter then we might like here, but we are surviving. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and wish I could be there to help. Not that there is much that I could do, other than just be. I love you.
