Weeping   11 comments

DEDICATION:

Pour tu, m’amie!

++++++++++++++++++++++

I weep

for a friend,

for what she has lost,

for what I have lost,

for what has ended.

=====

I weep

as I sort and put away

candle holders I have cleaned

and candles I think she might like one day.

=====

I weep

for what I have had to do

to help her in her absence.

=====

I weep

for her absence.

I miss her

and the person she used to be.

=====

I hope

that her future will be better for her,

yet that is yet to come.

What was

prompts me to weep.

What is

causes me to cry.
