So Still, My Love

So still, My Love,
but even so,
you seem to me to be in motion.

So still, My Love,
but in the way of a springing-off point
when the runner has passed by.

I will always love you,
and will always be the mother you need,
as long as (whatever it is that is me) exists.

So, still my love,
no matter these passages,
I love you and send my soul in the easy draft behind you,

my constant runner,
my only heart,
my adored and beautiful boy.

Tears for you both, and may these words bring you some comfort--they are beautiful as a silver mirror reflecting the love that was.

love to you, sweet shay caroline.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I am undone and weeping from the beauty of your poem and your love for your beautiful boy. I love "I will always be the mother you need", that gives me some comfort for my own lost boy. Your closing lines just did me in. I am so right there with you, Shay, in this loss, which is greater than some might understand, to souls who have hurt like we have, and whom only these beautiful creatures ever fully wholly loved, the way we always dreamed of being loved. Your bright-hearted boy still remembers you. He will be close by.

It's hard to respond to words that touched me so deeply. He really was a special one, Shay.

Tearfully beautiful, Shay. I have been thinking about you and your boy today. I know that day is coming soon with mine. I can hardly think about it.

this is one of your most beautiful poems, Shay. impossible to imagine the pain of your loss. know you are surrounded by the love of many friends and family. Bosco will always be with you in your heart, dear sister. your love was proven by the sacrifice you made to let him go.

You loved him well which is all he wanted. A rare gift.

What a beautiful, heart rending poem and what a tribute to your relationship with Bosco. Again, I'm sorry for the pain you feel, the loss, the heart ache.

i share your tears. a dark cloud has been hovering over my boy, Jules, also but he's been riding the cloud longer than expected.
i too, will soon have to make the sacrifice.

gracias for writing this beautiful piece for i will keep it so that when my time of sacrifice comes it shall help my heart and i will once again think of you and Sherry

my soul embraces yours

Susan said...

Bless you for knowing love and expressing it. I am crying tears that wanted to come out for awhile. The song too, but I love the poem. "My constant runner": so sad for your loss. Hug.

All I can do is cry with you.

Yes, the stillness is hard to explain. We had our Moxie put down at our house. My daughter and she kept eye contact to the very last moment - nose to nose. And then - silence. Chelsea closed her eyes, wrapped her up (insisted on her face being exposed as they wanted to wrap it up) and carried her out, gently placing her in the van. I remember every detail - it was all in slow motion for me. I am tearing up right now thinking of it. The locket means everything to Chelsea (I actually bought two for her as if she ever lost one … well, she would be ballistic. I have ordered yours and I will ship it as soon as I get it. I truly hope you like it.

Hugs… Bosco is running free and patiently waiting for the day you two will be together again - I really believe they have a "get into Heaven free" card. Hugs.

Margaret said...

I meant "stillness" not "silence".
