For Kay - Poem by Esra Sloblock

I arrived first.
With engineered time on my hands,
Reflections and ponderings abounded.
In the perfectly washed out,
Freeze dried day.
Leaves called me to watch
As they let go
And frolicked
And danced
In death's most feeble breath.
Just as she would wish.
My anger at life for it's failure
And at death for it's gratuitous theft
Finality accepted.
Younger than I
And no more.
Hearse arrived,
Clouds parted
And she shone again.

    Sweetheart. It's a beautiful piece from a beautiful man to an obviously beautiful lady. Your anger and resentment and frustration at a cruel life is tangible in this piece as it is in your eyes when you speak of her. I remember when you first hear the news and there is nothing you, anyone, can do; except for remember the good times, be glad that you were such a friend to her, and let her light shine for others as you do in this touching piece. I love you. xxxxxx (Report)Reply
