Those who leave us...

I had a friend at work pass away today. She has been sick and she passed this afternoon. The best way for me to deal with things like this is usually just to get it out. So I wrote a poem and wanted to share it with you guys.

Those who leave us...

Those who leave in January

Leave the snow behind

Those who leave in February

Don’t need a valentine

Those who leave in March

Saw their last green hours

Those who leave in April

Miss out on April showers

Those who leave in May

Depart while flowers blush

Those who leave in June

Won’t see the summer flush

Those who leave in July

Hear the fireworks kindle

Those who leave in August

Watch the summer dwindle

Those who leave in September

Won’t see the change of leaves

Those who leave in October

Will miss all hallows eve

Those who leave in November

Won’t need to be fed

Those who leave in December

Can’t smell the Gingerbread

Those who leave us, always,

Any time of year

leave a whisper with you

To wipe away your tears

But those who leave us never

Want us to be sad

They want us to remember

The good days that we had...
