A Last Look Round Poem by Bryan Sefton

A Last Look Round



Rooms whisper
Feet shuffle
Ghosts in corners
Night
Silver moon
Sailing

Memories
Music
Carols
Christmas
Santa
Voices
Entreat
May we?
Go down?
See?

Birth
Birthdays
Counting
Achievements
Maturing
Credits
Congratulations
Pats on backs
Pride

New voice
Shy
Hesitant
'Mum?
'Dad?
Seeing
Warmth
Welcoming
Familiarity
Ring,
Finger
I do

Then there are three
Then there are four
Then there's a soft
Knock on the door

'Docter?
Is he- -?
'I'm sorry
Arms
Supportive
Silence

Empty shirts
Shoes
Empty
Days
Nights

Hurt dulls
Heart heals
Time runs

Rooms whisper
Feet shuffle
Ghosts in corners
Night peeps in
Silver soul
Flying
