The Greatest Part - Poem by Jennifer L Granville

The greatest part of every day
Is in remembering you
Pulling the shirt from off your back
To give to me
What we both knew
To be the last gift.

And the greatest part of my day
Every day
Every wakeful night
Is in pressing my trembling lips
To that soft cloth
Begging, anyone, to give to you
Any portion of good
Fate allots to me

As scalding tears march down
In the ruthless procession of resignation
Over my tight, hot cheeks
To wet that most precious relic
In the only offering to you
I am left.

As I love.
