3ww writing prompt

the three words for today are: rest, sidewalk, twice


on the sidewalk
where we talked,
i heard your voice.
twice i thought
i saw your face,
smiling back at me.

letting go is hard
we shared our heart
our mind, our soul.
the day will come
when you live, only
in my dreams.

you will have the rest.

i need clarification on what you are talking about in that last line... they will have the rest of what???

paisley, i think for me i was thinking about the end of a relationship, you know where you share things, like cd's, books, etc. and in this poem one person is giving all that up except for the memories, while the other person gets to keep the stuff.

Heartbreaking.

I related too well to this. I can't say for certain that those dreams ever end.

all things come to an end eventually, and unfortunately endings are painful, well written!
