In Memoriam – #poetry #aprpad

April 24, 2016

Prompt: write a poem in which something is lost and then regained

In Memoriam

your death pierced my heart
bled me dry
a dark cloud descended
showered me with violet rain
O sweet soul –
I nearly drowned from grief

it took days to remember
you were a celebration
of life and living through song
your words renewed my spirit
lifted me from the deep funk
and I danced in the sunshine

O liberator!
blessed joy!
be at rest, sweet Prince
you served us well

  1. Though Prince is gone, his music brings a smile across my face every time I hear it. I keep a running sound track of his songs in my mind while I think. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to do that before–think while also listening to an internal sound track. I’m smiling a lot these days in spite of the sadness of knowing he is gone.

    • Lovely, Sandra.. I am finally smiling again when I hear his music. I was finally able to listen to the Purple Rain album and watch the movie. I do so miss him though.

  2. Thank you, hun
