Locked in a Moment

by Beth Gibbons 2 years ago in sad poetry

A poem dedicated to my dear friend Simon who passed away on February 5, 2017.

Locked in a Moment

Locked in a moment of time,Your memory lives on,Like the feelings do-Through the music,Through the tears,Through the years.

Wish I could unlock those moments.I’d relive themWhenever I miss you.

I listen to the music,I cry the tears,Yet I can’t get back that year.Now you’re forever gone,Making it an impossible longing.So locked in this moment of time,Will forever be your memory,Making it somehow more meaningful,Though it always heldA nostalgic spot in my heartThat now rips me more apart.For the reality of how lost those moments areHas fully set in...
