The island may be quiet,
raining tears of empty love.
I may be gone,
in heaven's dreams,
sailing somewhere way above.
Those days you seem to miss me,
where the ocean looks too grey,
look at the sky;
where I lie,
and the beach;
where my heart lays.
My magical warmth blesses you,
though my statue stands clear.
My soul still holds my laughter,
but the island still holds my fears.
I'm free forever from being anxious,
I'm free forever from being scared.
I'm free above an island...
Just wanted to let you know I'm here.
Remember me for how courageous,
brave and thoughtful I have been.
Remember the times where we've smiled,
and I've dusted adulthood to kin.
My spirit will dance
the cobblestone roads,
the white picket fences,
the pink little rose.
I will never leave you,
I promise you that.
Now, don't forget to write me back.


The author's comments:
This poem is dedicated to a dear from of my Godmother's, Mary. She passed away of lung cancer recentley and I wrote this poem as a reminder to my Godmother that Mary will always be there. The little town my Godmother and Mary live in, in Nantucket, was a town where everybody knows everybody. Her spirit and graceous loving embrace will be missed.
