And then one day

His hands had held, had wiped the tears.

His eyes had smiled, grown wistful, cleared.

His strength, his love had held me up

Against those twists, those turns of life.

And then one day

It all grew still.

My heart was heavy, as only hearts can be

And all I had were memories.

That’s all you’ll have, they said to me.

He’s gone to a shore you cannot reach.

And then one day, I saw them play

My little boys, ten and twelve.

I caught my breath,

I looked again.

It was those hands, those eyes,

That brow.

The hair that curled,

The crooked smile.

They had not seen, but I could see.

There is no shore I have to reach

Because he is here with me.
