Bringing You Home (for Micael)

So
it's time
for 
good bye
You're leaving
for good
where
I can't
follow you
I don't want just
memories
I have
ink
paper
canvas, paint
I will
bring
you back
home.

This leaves us with more questions than answers, it testifies to the power of art.

Sometimes that's all one can do. Continue communicating by the 'means' available. Fortunately, you have wonderful 'means', your words. Thank you for this emotional water-color (tearful) painting.

Yes, that's the way to do it!
