Those Shades Looked Better on You


Your smile that day was the last,
when those shades looked better on you.
This the chance?
Sun high, mid-afternoon,
like yesterday,
memorial to me.

Funny, we talked longer, unlike us,
the hint?

A stride from you taken, farewell implied,
it felt no different,
only to you, it was.

My goodbye changed forever,
when those shades looked better on you.

    • Ah, thanks, friend. It was a pair of shades that I had that he liked. So, that day I gave them to him before I left for university. A few days later, he took his own life. Glad you went for the read.

      • I was wondering what was the exact meaning of those glasses. It sounds like you added a bit of sunshine to the final days of darkness.
