Our Last Flight (Heavy Skies)

The skies are a little dimmer tonight,  
Without the glimmer of your light—  
That special shimmer in your eye,  
Like a shooting star plucked from the sky.  
I shut the door and softly sigh,  
For better days and softer skies;  
As tears well up behind my eyes,  
I hang my heavy head and cry.  
Another long and lonely night…  
Here’s to another solo flight;  
And though your body I have known,  
It’s with your soul that I have flown!

Author's Note
A culmination of emotions brought on by the 1 year anniversary of my grandfather's death, a break up with my fiancée, and the feeling that I've lost my mom to drugs again.

*A big thanks to these 3 for the inspiration:
1)  MyPerspectives’ “A Grain of Sand”
2)   Solanaceae’s “The Wren”
3)   Souladareatease's “Without My Light”

p.s. MyPerspective is my mother, and her poem is about the loss of her sister a couple years back.
