Where Kelly Was

My heart is displaced only memory's face where Kelly was. Her gingerbread bear has a wistful stare the bed now is bare where Kelly was. She's the garden in bloom, the promise of June. I cherish her grin, my rainbows all end where Kelly was. She's the sky full of stars, fireflies in a jar, a cup full of laughter, that moment just after you hug someone you love. She's the windchimes prelude, was nothing subdued where Kelly was. There's that place by the creek where always she'd sneak to pick the wildflowers, dance summer showers, and sing songs by the hours. Now there is left only soft violets where Kelly was.
