My Sky, My Voice

above the stillness

I’ve heard you

you deserve answers


I’m sorry daddy

I need to be honest

I care about you

but even up here

there is no gentle way

of saying no

or I’m sorry


I can only love

as a spirit


I can’t be with you


my baby hands

can never touch

your cheeks

and heal you


the love

you need

is physical

with real touch


from up here

I’m not enough

you deserve more


please remember

you are worthy of love


take care of yourself

find comfort with the love

of friends and family


I’ll be here

listening if you want

silently caring

shining as much dim light

as I can

on your beautiful heart

  1. You almost make me believe in heaven…

    …..and, I think after the poems of the past week, you owe me a box of tissue. Your loss and grief is very palpable in your words… and, I’ve usually got a few tears in my eyes at the end of your posts…

    I hope that your writing, and sharing, is bringing you some moments of comfort….

  2. You are fortunate to hear the words of stars, the voice of the universe… it is love in its perfect form.
    A beautiful piece. Thanks!

  3. This tugs at the heart like many of your poems do, Geo, and although it’s sad, I can understand your feelings. It’s easy to say or know that our loved ones are in a better place and no longer suffering if they were. But it’s not the same. They’re not here physically for us to spend time with, talk to, hug, touch, etc. So your words were so, so true to the heart…I wish you a blessed, peaceful weekend…♥
