Hury Patience!

entry picture

The details of you have blurred

over the years since you've been gone,

but how I miss you still has sharp edges


that cut the ribbons of my memories,

laying them bare and exposed

against all of this night of your absence.


I’ll keep trying to patch the ribbons together

into something beautiful so I can remember you

only as daylight, and the jagged loss hopefully,

with patience, no longer cuts when I visit you.

' remember you, only as daylight '
just one brilliant line of so many.

Absolutely lovely poem Mike, thank you.
