The Balance To Grief (Musings of a Lonely Siren 07/2011)



So grief cannot haunt you
If you wear joy on your sleeve
Sorrow silver as a moonbeam
Your smile a pocket of relief

A damper for the color or
The voice a notch too loud
Your laugh a beam of light
Around the edges of my cloud

Even in the still of sadness
The bright wonder revels
For one cannot appreciate one less
The other in contrast spills

Across the page of life birth and growth and cost
Make each a bit more precious so nothing is truly lost

Your laugh forever dances in the reaches of my mind
And the missing of it tugs upon my heart all through my time

Even as I let you go
I hold you tightly still
You’ll weave among my dreams and so
You will be immortal
