“Life After Death”

Ode to my best friend – Cheryl Marie Mickens

 

Playing cards, minding our peace

The energy shifts beneath our feet

The temper, the heat

As we retreat

 

Wind scraping at our faces

As we pass through many places

Familiar spaces

My heart races

 

Afraid but fearless

I must confess

My life was a mess

And you relieved this stress

 

A New Orleans bar

Drag Queens with guitars

Driving in your car

The memories are not so far

 

Sweet Georgia Peach

Was within our reach

Again we would meet

Again you would teach

 

The years went by

We always said hi

Time does fly

When you try to hide

 

Los Angeles appears

Again you are near

 

It’s not the same

You are in pain

 

As I lay by your side

And look into your eyes

I can’t help but cry

I know you are ready to die

 

Feeling helpless, angry and sad

I want to break something bad

You are my friend

The one who rescued me

Ran through the wind and the rain

With me

Laughed with me, cried with me, and lied for me

 

RIP Cheryl Marie Mickens – I miss your beautiful soul

Even in your death, you are still bringing more life to my life. See you- but not yet 😉
