When I am Gone

Maui Sunset

When I’m gone

Whenever that may be

Let me disappear softly into the tangerines, the rose buds, and the lilacs of the early evening sky.

Let the constant, slow tumbling of the waves on the sand be my voice forever your life’s metronome

Reminding you of my ceaseless love and my quiet, enduring presence.

Let the bright sun, as it kisses the horizon, kiss you goodnight in my lips unhappy absence.

And as the orb sinks into the sea

Remember it will always rise again It’s rays will envelope you in a warm embrace when my arms are no longer able

When I am gone

Whenever that may be
