Summary

I guess as we all get older and people we know start to disappear with alarming frequency, we get to the stage where we are waiting for the next one to go.

I have reached

The stage in life

Where fairy lights

Within me

My friends

Acquaintances

Gathered

Over a lifetime

Have started to

Burn out and die

Some have been dim

For a while

They may remain so

Others

Burning

Bright

Shining

Examples

To the world

Without warning

Flickered

Were gone

 

Now when people

Exit my life

For a day

Or so I wonder

Whether I will see them

Again or

Conversely

They

Will see me

Again

 

Lights within me

I have never met

Conversed with

Got close to

Over the internet

Shocked was I

To find the pain

Of losing

One of them

Was no less

Than the pain

Of losing one

I had known Personally

 

So when people tell me

They are going

Away for a while

I shudder

Dark mists

Surround

The little bulb

In my heart

And I wait.
