for Jill

with gentleness I resurrect your face of porcelain
with numbness I restrain my eyes from weeping
with heartbrokenness I say goodbye
and although we never met, I feel as tho we shared
we shared a love of laughter, we shared a common thread
we shared a drink together, as we celebrated friends
I cannot compare your life to mine, and yet I do it all the time
I wonder now, how many times my life was too in danger
I wonder why I all too kindly, bent the rules for strangers
I would linger long and pour my petals on your grave
for you deserve the sweet perfume of every single age
and if by chance I meet you in the heavens swirling still
I’ll hold a candle to your face and recognise you Jill
I send you all my love and all my heart and hope for peace
That you will not know loneliness but everlasting bliss
