REMNANTS

REMNANTS

And where did they go
the people I used to know.
The '' other side”has no meaning
to me.
They are lost in some darkness
that blinds my sight
as though all they were
are the things they left behind.

There is a deep despair and sorrow in these words my heart dropped at your ending, all they were and all they will ever be is left in those inanimate but spirit infused objects.

Beautifully sad writing

with much love your Jayne xxx

My Jayne, two years ago I had kidney failure and would have been dead by the next morning had I not called the paramedics. As you know I have Parkinsons which affects my right side In September I broke my left hip, .and I can barley walk or take care of myself, I don't look it , but I am 71, I live alone and have no family in Florida, I own my own condo,and it is financially "doable". But, it is difficult to be alone and to try to take care of yourself. To move back to NY is an overwhelming task. I miss the family that has passed--the love, the care, and the warmth My sense is that I don't have much longer.

Love from your Joe.

I know what its like to have to fend for yourself when your not doing so hot but I cant imagine what its been like for you, I wish you much light and love dear man, and I hope your sense is wrong I hope to have my Joe for many more days to come

It breaks my heart to feel your sorrow at times but I always read for to be good friends we have to share the Journey don't we ?

with love your Jayne xxx

To add to the comment of Jayne, this piece says so much in so few lines. Given the situation you have mentioned above, I salute your indomitable spirit and quality of your writes...my very best wishes and warm regards to you...

As suggested by you, I am back after going through the comments, especially exchanged beween you and Esker and the concluding one by you narrating your personal experiences...truly meaningful and touched my heart....

I am reminded of a real time story of a few years back, when I lost a dear on line friend in Canada...he and his girl friend at the time were building on their love and a few months after he was gone she wrote to me that he wanted to gift to her a Bell which he was very fond of...and she believed that his soul guided her to a garage sale where the first thing she gazed at amongst the many articles there was that Bell. ...

warm regards dear friend..

As we age and are about to leave the stage

do not rage… we all are simple actors on a small stage … times the platform ….we stand in just a corner…. as strangers all around …. so I have found a solution…. to lessen human mental aberration …. try and detach from all around… be a man simple and sound …. believe yourself to be a new passenger …about to board a train -----heaven bound… with no return… leaving all memories… for times galleries… some years hence ,someone may recall… we once too traveled…..lessen your human desired burden .. to be remembered.. by whom…..

loved

I do keep looking but I cant find anything new from you I hope the muse gets her way with you and gives us some of your amazing poetry very soon

much love your Jayne xxx
