The Last Look at My Hometown

A last glance through tearful eyes
As you vanished into the past
Taking with you my childhood

You were alone and silent
Beneath your lambent glow
A pillar of hope against the darkness

I will always remember you
Encased in a bubble of murky light
My oasis, my haven shielded from the world

You taught me to love
To forgive, to hope, to dream
You gave me courage

You showed me the questions
Gave me freedom to act
Allowed me to make mistakes

You will live a long and prosperous life
In my heart and memories
Goodbye my dear friend.

    1. yes, it was erased in 1992 by a flood the is said to happen once in a hundred years. Sad but if it would have survived that one, it would have been wiped out again this year by another 100 year flood.
