I seek some remembrance today;
staring at that gaudy wallpaper
hung with care in our bedroom.
I wonder if you’re finally at peace;
days roll slow, thoughts come and go
in this lonely, cathartic lifetime.
This abysmal and debilitating age;
can a serene existence be found
or must I survive with this queasy,
innocuous ameliorate daily?
Feel a boisterous folly during days
as spring’s cascading rain brings
childish recollections of happiness.
Come visit me in a soft whisper;
dancing with me rocking slowly
as a coolish hazy misty loving spirit.
Meet me at the old frog pond where
our chairs sit empty in stoic repose as
the sun rises above the trees to the east.
Hence, I’ll take one more breath this day,
and you…..you are….where?
