Peaceful Beauty

Peaceful Beauty


Blue dresses bustled through the door
passing glances sorry for your loss
I didn’t want sympathy
while the dark moustache motioned above
a white linen coat feeling my pain
I didn’t want empathy!

Hands once gentle
pull and tug at plastic tubing
as the machine that had bleeped so incessantly
silently rolled out the door
by the room where we had talked
of love.

The world fell silent
and the dresses say I can have a few minutes
to say good bye
I don’t understand good bye
we have said all we have had to say
and I look at you and sadly smile
at your peaceful beauty.

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
