Beauty Has Left Us

A little something I wrote in honor of a friend.  Here’s to you Beautiful.

Beauty has Left Us

Beauty has left us
the way she always does
amazement on our faces
longing in our hearts

I had assumed that she would return
like the sunset
like the waves
like she always has

in what feels like eternity
but must still just be my lifetime

the sunset has paraded by
more times than I can count
the waves have smashed the shore
and sprayed my face
anxious for my attention

but still
I wait for her

She told me there might be a time
when flowers grew without her
when sunlight shined
on her shadow

I thought
Such beauty cannot go
Such joy cannot disappear

amazement on my face
longing in my heart
I stare
at the place where she once stood.
