 once upon a time

You are only gone awhile, Liz.
Still I listen for your laughter,
Search for your ready smile.

It seems a longish time though
I know you have only left.
Even if you stay away awhile
the beauty of you is in my mind.
It will  remain forever joyous.

Days we walked,and talked
You would go away awhile.
Wasn't ever a longish time.

Now you have passed away
I will miss you for longer than awhile.HUSH
You are only to be gone awhile, wee Liz.
