Always It Is Snowing In My Heart - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Here, it is

in my heart

great big flakes of remembrance

your laughter
like lace

traced upon
a midnight

fragile as the memory
(that it is)

I hold you still
in this moment

you are


unwilling to let
the moment


always you are laughing
somewhere in my heart

your frosted laughter
so alive

always it is snowing
somewhere in my heart

where your death
cannot touch you.
