For my friend Melissa who lost her beloved Zeus

Solace
by Lisa Carmel Singer

From the silence of your pain I heard my name
and on the wings of light I have come
to see the sadness in your eyes
that cry without tears.

Can you see me?
I am here.
I will always be near you
to calm your shattered heart
and to make you smile at the memories.

Do you feel me?
Perhaps a soft brush of fur.
You ache to believe it's real
but you are afraid to hope.
You brush away a strand of hair
But it was I, whispering.....

I am only here for but a moment.
The silver thread gently quivers.
I will leave behind my love in a dream.
When you awaken, and without really knowing why

Your heart will know at last
That it is all right, for now
to say good-bye
