A poem about dealing with the death of a loved one who I did not get to say goodbye to due to Covid-19.
In memory of Poppy.
Best friend and most loyal dog in the world.

I feel you in the rainclouds

And perfume of petrichor,

As you walk in-step beside me

Although I can't see you anymore


Drifting through the heavens dawn

In a sailboat of stars,

On a riverbed of memories

Peace magnifies your heart


Pearlescent purity

And a warming embrace,

A celestial light

Illuminates your face


I feel you amongst the poppies

Tracing my shadow when I'm alone,

And my tears dance down less sadly

For I know you're finally home


And your eyes open in wonder

To guide those you adored,

Outgrowing your Earthly body

With your soul and mind restored


I feel you in the moonlight

You say you're safe from harm,

For now I'll hold you in my heart

Until I hold you in my arms


Perhaps I'll glimpse you sooner

Maybe on the seam of sleep,

Where we'll reunite, forever young

In the sweetest wish I speak


We'll dance along the cosmos

To a sanctuary made of dreams

Where the oceans parade in harmony

And the planets seem to gleam


Now it may seem quite the distance

Until your hand rests in mine,

But the goodbye is not forever

Just farewell for the very last time


I feel you when the wind sings

And it makes my heart believe,

That the people we love dearest

Never truly leave

It's a terrible thing to go through. Their absence is so strongly felt. A poem full of grief, but also of resignation and hope.
