Edward Charles McDevitt

Arthur Graham (An Acrostic Poem)

Although you left me quick, and really far too soon,

Really all I do is stare, at the stars and the moon.

To not have you here, sitting with me in the car,

Hoping you're the one I see, that big brightest star.

Until we meet again, I don't know when that'll be,

Right now you're in my heart, deep inside of me.

God's the only one who knows, when we leave this realm,

Right now He's steering the ship, and standing at the helm.

Although I miss you so, and I have yet to grieve,

Hopeless that you're gone, yet you did not leave.

As I don't know His plans, the one He has for me,

Make sure He lets you know, in my heart forever be.

    He will still be with you in your heart, your love is so strong that all will be well in time.

      Wow. Thanks Goldfinch.. It's been quite a while for me being on this site. I've been going through so much since May of last year. It was dealing with my siblings and Mother. With my Mother's dementia, they took advantage of her financially and manipulations. We head to court soon. Some of my earlier poems had to do with my siblings not being there to help me with Mom but, when her memory started going - BOOM - They were right there. They even had her change her will 3 times. With dementia??? C'mon now.. BS.
