elegy

Reposting some poems that seem appropriate for the mood today.

He was alive
and then he wasn’t
just like that he went out
a candle leaving only smoke
then disappearing quietly

It was cold without him,
a dozen springs came and went
bringing a chill each time,
always a surprise to me,

I don’t know why
after all these years
I should still feel alone
never filling the space
that awaits his return
