So Far Away . . .


We moved through life

Together

With similar hopes

But on separate paths

Like parallel dreams

So close, but apart

Never touching

Our paths crossed

Only in spirit

For a time

Our words met

And were bound with each other

They danced together

For a while

On the page

But now you are gone

So far away

No goodbye

Your words faded from our page

Leaving a deep void

That no other's words can fill

Our final destinations

So far from each other

So far away ...

i know this is based on loosing a friend, but i really love how you achieve a sense of disappearing and fading in your last two passages.
do know that i hate that your inspiration comes from your sense of loss, but it's made for some beautiful poems.

Ruela said...

agree with foam...
this is beautiful!

liebe Dianne
if it were not so gagangen, this way you had never such a beautiful poem written, as sad as it is
with this idea you speak from the hearts of many ...
I feel it good, yes, I wish you very well, dear Dianne
with warm regards, Jasmin
eine schöne und gute Zeit, ein neuer Weg.....
liebe Grüße

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy , yes it is written from loss, I am still trying to accept this, the words come straight from my feelings... I guess there is some beauty in writing about our feelingd of loss.
I was reading some of our correspondence from happier days, it is precious to me, even though now it has no meaning but it is a memory of a time that I do not want to lose.
It reminded me once again of how much I miss him and that I will never have a friend quite like him again.
How lovely it would be to write about feelings of happiness, of being wanted and loved, it would make a pleasant change.

I love your 'chicken' avatar, it is very well drawn and so cute. :)

Thank you dearest Ruela , it is so lovely of you to visit me, I'm pleased that you liked my poem.

liebe Jasmin
If I did not have this experience then I could not have written such a heart felt poem ... I am sure many have felt this way in their hearts from loss and sadness but how lovely it would be to write about happiness instead, a happy ending and no silence and distance between us.
Thank you for your thoughtful and kind wishes.
Warm wishes and greetings, Dianne.

foam said...

thank you. it is a nice little chicken. i think it's called miro. i'm not sure it was made by him though. it doesn't seen to be miro's signature.

dianne said...

I thought you had drawn it Foamy dear, it is very cute...I hope your 'chicken' collage is going well?

Leovi said...

I love this poem evoke a few words what life is like, people are like that cross paths, some once, others several times or many, but it is difficult to walk the same path, not to say that is impossible. A hug

dianne said...

Thank you dear Leovi for your thoughtful words.People don't have to walk the same path but they can choose to walk their own paths side by side, on the same journey and with the same destination in sight.

Hugs xoxoxo ♡

Shweta Tiwari said...

Lovely poem Dianne,
I wonder how beautifully u are able to express your feelings. this is definitely one of your masterpieces.
just a week left in college. Will go to home. And in a month will be joining new job. So just too short a time to do a lot of things. Wanted to post something, but not able to get enough time to sit and think. Hope I get sometime before I leave for home.
Take care

Love
shweta

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Shweta
I am pleased that you enjoyed my poem, I write exactly how I am feeling, the sadness the disappointment and try to put it into some kind of semblance of meaning so that it can be understood and the emotion felt.
Thank you for coming here to comment when you are so busy, I always appreciate your lovely comments.
Just a week left of college and then home, that time has passed so quickly...you have worked very hard, enjoy the break.
Good luck with your new job,I hope it is everything that you want and that you will be happy, you deserve the very best.
Please keep in touch when you have a spare moment, I shall miss you.
Take care sweet girl.

Love Dianne. xoxoxo ♡

J Cosmo Newbery said...

I think most of us move through life on parallel paths.

dianne said...

Yes dear J Cosmo , I guess we do, it is just that some of our paths are closer and we actually connect for a time, sometimes from the first time we meet.

Elia said...

HLiza said...

You know Dianne, your poem tell the whole truth of what is happening now in this blogworld that we're enjoying now..me and you and the others sharing things we have, thinking alike and giving strength to each other without ever meeting personally (well I met Lee Kennedy once; but not long enough)..have you ever thought of what may come when we leave from this world..the blog still lingers without new posts; maybe readers will feel like what you feel at the end of the poem..just a thought that pops up in my mind..

dianne said...

Thank you dear /t. ! :)

dianne said...

Thank you dear HLiza yes I have often thought of the friends I have made here without ever meeting any of you. I am always so grateful for all of the comments, the advice and the thoughtful support that you all give me.
I have wondered if my words will stay here when I leave this Earth and if someone will read them one day and feel how I am feeling and perhaps help them in some way ... that is a lovely thought HLiza, you are a special person.

Craftsman of light said...

Yes, we move forward, sometimes retained behind, yet roads open, many roads....some we may pass by whilst being on someother...we work our way through the gates of Life to where it takes us!
i love the way you deliver this poem!
thanks a lots Dianne!
love
col.

dianne said...

Yes dear col we try to move forward but if there is someone there who is precious to us we will always look back trying to recapture those moments when our paths crossed and we felt their warmth and happiness...but as their words fade on the page and a chill sets in we must try to forget and look for a new page and another path.
These words were straight from my heart.
love Dianne
