Sidewalk Chalk

About two in the morning
late night walk with my dog
through a neighborhood at rest
after a busy day of simple living
work, school, house chores
paying bills
and domestic arguments
all lying, done
in their cozy memory foam beds
While the mutt and I walk
blasting post-hardcore in my head

I come across a message
written in sidewalk chalk
which mournfully said:

'Goodbye Granpa, I miss and
love u
very very much
1945-2010'

A young girl is in distress
probably lying awake
with warm salty eyes
shedding tears
splashing memories
on her pillow

I have never felt
the pain from a deceased
member of my heart
but on that night
I felt her pain
through the rainbow colors
on the sidewalk
