National Poetry Month – Winding down towards warmer days in May

April Showers, May Flowers.  What is it about the month of April.  In memory of a loved one, our poet for today is Barbara Force.
GOOD-BY

Written by Barbara Force

        I didn’t want you to leave
        You didn’t want to go.
        But lymphoma became leukemia
        And so, the end of the show.
        My lungs could find no air
        The tears streamed down my face.
        Courageously and gracefully Dan left us
        No one can take your place.

  1. What a beautiful tribute to Dan and your life together. Every word in your poem has meaning and importance. “My lungs could find no air” is so powerful. Barb, you are a brave and lovely woman and I feel so blessed to know you. xo~~Liz
