The Great Matter

007

Where to begin?
How to say good-bye when I’d just said hello.
The sun rises, sets, and a phone call.
The world changes. The heart stops.
Maroon toe nails. The essence of you fills the room.
Called to hold open the space.
Grief, shock, shattered pieces.
Us, here on the ground, you, set free.
Bright shining light.
Always shining.
Thank you for showing us love.
And, thank you, for the entire reminder.
