Farewell

Where do I store, one more memory? 

How do I secure another story, 

In the overstuffed pages of my mind?    

  

I squirrel about, foraging little trinkets 

And a happy little memory, to link it 

To you, till no more space I can find.    

  

Too heavy this final goodbye, 

I try to lighten with a sigh 

But so laden it is, I could drown.    

  

I wait for time to lighten 

The burden of days, you had brightened, 

Till they fade away without a sound.    

  

So I can make some room there 

And fill my lungs with some air 

That was knocked out by farewells.    

  

And fill new diaries with new glimpses, 

Though I end my lines in ellipses, 

For fullstops- they sound like the knell.

When thoughts began to rhyme,
And lines found a heartbeat,
I transformed from a dentist to a poet.
