Love, Great and Small

Timeless like a crescent moon in a starless sky,

I feel your loss in every moment of every day

until it becomes a second skin I wear without thought

It has become a part of me

Oh, but the memories of your bright smile and genuine warmth!

These are the treasures that lend an everlasting peace

Even within silence, I hear your booming voice

That steadfast foghorn to guide us in this sea of grief

How fortunate were we to share your last days

a sliver of laughter to bridge our tears

There is lightness in remembering

when the love you left behind is boundless
