Poem a Day: My Only Hope

 

We walk,
Hand in hand,
We talk,
On the sand.

***

Across the river you go,
For the Force has called you home,
It was a long time ago,
Along with the foam.

***

Now you’ll stay,
At peace with time,
In a galaxy far, far, away,
I couldn’t think of a rhyme.

***

Now as all nerds mope,
Obi-wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

Poem a Day: Carrie Fisher

 

A geek’s first love,
Far, far, away,
In the stars up above,
She has gone to stay.

***

Her mind works like mine,
Always at odds with itself,
It’s the way divine,
No this way, all for myself.

***

I never met you,
You probably wouldn’t care,
I don’t know how to say I love you,
My face lost in the glare.

***

May the force be with you,
I think I need a tissue.

***Author’s Note***

In memory of Princess Leia. May the Force guide you home.
