April 10th – In Her Mind

Tearful eyes
She did let go
Lots of love
Yet new paths
She took to so
Angel of hers
Not understood
Her pain inside
Just few words
That seared both
Scars on mind
Some troubles
Life had her lent
In desperation
No hands to hold
Tired mind spent
Vicarious were
Thoughts mine
Pain I did see
Silent few tears
So many fears
Captive yet free
Just a glance
Into her heart
I felt her sorrow
She did let go
With heavy heart
Awaiting tomorrow

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I liked your poem very much Leo. How to understand adequately; the feelings of another, departing, and waiting for an unknown tomorrow. Thanks for putting it to works. My best, Rob.

  2. Letting go. Does letting go of a past full of hurt mean also letting go of a present that could be full of hope? Does it all have to go over the side in order to balance the scales?Beautifully written Leo. As always.

  3. A beautifully haunting poem, I must say. I feel her longing not to let go and the struggle within…but the hope of what tomorrow will bring. Lovely.
