Here’s an oldie for Flashback Friday, “Love and Loss”:

Her face was caressed by a leaf blown off a tree

It reminded her of his gentle touch

A soft summer breeze encircled her and then let her free

It reminded her of his warm embrace

In silence she remained as she listened to the buzz of a nearby bee

It reminded her of his determination

Children laughing in the distance, she could hear them full of joy and glee

It reminded her of his kind heart

The wailing of a police siren close enough to hear but too far to see

It reminded her of his protection

Her love she had lost too soon, most would agree

It was so sudden, no one could’ve possibly foreseen

As she walked and remembered her lost love in details great and small

She was reminded that it’s better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all
