te extraño

By Magdalena

I stood on the shore 
of the earth 
your soul leave 

my childlike 
let slip 
your name 
in silence 
at my feet 

you are 

and remember nothing 

of the rusting world 

a constant light 
behind my eyes 

you disconnect 
but never leave 

te extraño 

with wings of moon-moths 
ever waxing 
through galaxies 
I cannot reach 

my angel

    My brother died as well. Lo extraño también. Poetry always touches me, but this piece went beyond that.

    An unforgettable image evoked by your words of beauty and perhaps bon voyage Magdalena. Sad and yet perhaps bittersweet in the recollection, cheers! - Dan (good to see you again)
