Goodbye, Little One

Glancing over your shoulder

You grab your keys

Flowery cards line the table

Where toys lay yesterday

A blurred drive

Gripping the wheel tight

Feeling the pain of the one sitting beside you

Greetings, smiles and tears

As you walk in and face others.

Little One - MyFriendDebbie.com

A small, beautiful box

So small

too small.

Your sunglasses fog

As the box nestles between dirt ledges

Soon to descend.

Is this all there is?


Rubbing your sunglasses you wince

And look up

And the veil is peeled

Just for an instant

You see his face

And his smile tells you

Even though your heart is pierced

You couldn’t wish him back

Because he is happy

He is perfect

He is loved.

Author Note:  This poem is dedicated to: John and Carri Anne Hoover, whose son inspired a story of love which can be read here First Dance.
