I Died Today

You didn’t read the obituary

inscribed permanently

on the headstone

of my heart?


“She died an untimely death

her heart broken

For him she will

eternally grieve”


You could not find the place

where our love could abide

you made the effort

for us -you strived


Hold me dear

plant one more  kiss

lay me in the grave

of lost tomorrows


Place flowers on the grave

of our hopes and dreams

remember – I died


of you


Thanks to Alanna Ralph for the chilling photo

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!
