Breath Of Air
Author: Capricorn


You came back to my life, a breath of air!
Your humour made me smile, and life enjoy.
For I was in the darkness of despair,
your kindness made me glow with love and joy.

So sadness fills my heart now that you've left,
your memory will brighten up my day.
Part of my life is feeling quite bereft,
but time had come for you to fly away.

I miss you now, but know you'll be back soon,
and look forward to seeing you in June.

Yes Barb, when they're young you don't realise just how much you will miss them, but you're right I do appreciate his company more when he is at home now.

with Luc on your poem

"You came back to my life,a breath of air!"
that was a stuning right up on top line that hit me.
I still feel the strenght between the lines and meant that I did not review comments before I made mine which I do on the first read on poems and this one has much to come back too
