graciousness

memory is jarred,
shaken awake,
those final hours,
final days.

silenced corridors,
different voices,
they moved the TV,
you too, and then me.

summer came,
the days warmed,
they were not your clothes
you wore.

we spoke of the same dreams,
and such that i believed,
though day then night
saw them unachieved.

and those last little meals,
how much did they mean?
how we laughed, smiled,
we erased the dead years,

and you showed me grace
and graciousness, in defeat,
and in retreat,
and in the short hours
before your endless, endless sleep.

time grows a little heavy
on me this week,
how quietly through the days,
i hear you speak.

when sometimes
it’s like you were never here
as the days stretch into months,
and years,
and memory washes
me out with tears.

Saturn is clear in the sky
tonight,
i see it and i think of you,
and what you taught me,
as you moved through.

graciousness
