Empty Room





Empty Room

Held your tiara in my fingers,
Twirling the crystal gems to catch the light.

Cleaned under your bed finding two lip balms
And a holey sock.

Absence filling the spaces where once was presence;
Your being’s power penetrating cardiac cells;
Brain synapses processing swelling sensation.

Prayers offered as I leave your room tidy,
Missing cluttered creativity strewn about the floor.

Dusk light messengers affection
Awaiting dawn’s mellow melody.

Memory tangled action flies deep into day.
Baby girl, princess, now a woman,
On the first steps of the wide world.

Angels whisper wisdom,
Heart and mind hear and heed.

Though no touch or proximity,
arms surround, support;

Hopes uplift,
To wait for flesh where memory now stands.

May you thrive through your life changes.
