181st Weekly Poetry Contest winner: The Final Word

by Rie Sheridan Rose

 I wish I could have talked to you again…

but I’d lost track of you over the years.


I was afraid to search the internet…

fearing all I would find was an obituary.


So I lost the chance to say how much

you taught me about love and life.


How the sound of your laugh

still comes back to me in dreams.


I should have been braver…

now I can only feel the loss.


And whisper only goodbye.
