Ashes Over Kenosha

Post by The Ravyn » Sat Jan 10, 2004 6:52 am

eventually it will happen, love
you know as well as i
when it does i want no grieving
no final resting place, no flowers
take me up to our special place
just you and the girls
make small the fire and remember
the good times and the bad
the joy and the sorrow
then spread the ashes
over kenosha that i love
that i might ever linger there
whatever happens betwixt then and now
always remember that you, love
have brought unending happiness
to a soul shrouded in despair
take my hand if you don't know where you're goin' ... i'll understand .... i've lost the way myself ...

this is more sweet and loving than it is tormented and dark, perhaps it should be in the love forum? Very well written, beautifully good stuff.

She sure knew how to leave those she loved with a peace in their hearts before she left this cruel wonder you can never forget someone like Ravyn... :bow: :bow:

I don't think I've ever read a better love poem... even if just for the last three lines... Lisa and Jenn were truly blessed...
"Don't doubt yourself... Others will do that for you..."
"There's a reason for everything, and everything has a reason..."

The aspen on Kenosha were an amazingly brilliant gold when I took the girls up to our little special place in September. Jenn was very close this year. I could hear her voice in the wind rustled leaves.
