Alone


The Mosel Valley
This special place
Full of life and light
Of depth and space.
We found it together
Made special friends
All good things in time
Have their ends.

We're not coming back
I can see it in your eye
We came here
Just to say goodbye.
Boosted by chemo and
Your will to live
By now you've given
Nearly all you had to give.

The intensity of
Those last  quiet walks
The intimacy of
Those last evening talks
I have never
Been here alone
Can never return,
All on my own

it is so fitting
The way it ends
Farewell embraces
From loving friends
One last long look
And we all know
We'll climb in the car
And we'll finally go,

Now ten years later
My life has moved on.
You're still In my heart
Long after you're gone.
I'm not really certain i
I'll ever be able to go
But thoughts of Mosel
Still cause a warm
