A Farewell – A Poem by Emily Dennis


The last time

I saw you

I thought I’d see you again.

It wasn’t an active thought

More an assumption

A given fact.

Now I can only see the past you, forever.


Strange to think it was at another funeral.

You were there for him when the world


You were going to be everything

Good dreams don’t last.

Good people don’t last either.


You weren’t always in my thoughts

I must admit

But now you can never leave them.

That’s how this ends, I suppose.

Your smiles, hugs, and laughs

in a hole
