This poem is written to express grief and offer solace to those who are experiencing the loss of a loved one. Through my work, I have been keenly aware of the dedications engraved on Claddagh rings, in memory of those who have passed. They are loved and will never be forgotten. Sadly I have also suffered a great loss.
At Rainbows End by IJD.
At rainbows end, where love transcends
And sorrow echoes in the breeze
I stand alone, my heart now mends
For my loved one has found their peace
The sky is gray, the clouds above
Bear witness to my silent plea
For one last glimpse, one final touch
But all that's left is a memory
Memories of laughter, love, and pain
Flicker in my mind like a flame
Guiding me through the endless rain
Till I see you again, I'll never be the same
With heavy heart and solemn tread
I place the Claddagh on their hand
A symbol of the love that never fled
Memories forever encased in golden band.
As I say my final goodbyes
I know deep down that love never dies
Our bond unbroken, till I reach the other side.
