You’re gone

And when I look up at the sky

You're wearing a rainbow like a tiara

It makes me smile

A small, sad smile

And you bring the clouds together

For one to hug another

Though one is pristine white and the other saddish grey

And you make a bird glide across

Like a fallen bow from your hair

Then make it fold its wings on the bench beside me

But when I look into its bewildered eyes

And reach out to touch it’s feathery wings

You make it fly away

And when I look back up at you

The rainbow is gone

And the sky is grey

sad poetry
