tears for a fallen father



i will not let dark occur

or dusk inhabit the sunshine

edges



i think of you

in sleep's most ambient gaze,

a gentle smile then it rained



a distant voice of

gathered whispers,

a distant song



calling you

calling you

to meet old vanished friends



but here,

here the sun is broken

and the sky bereft



as if sunlight

has been banished

and the noise from laughter, muffled



i will not let twilight

become the end of day

or sorrow to requiem brighter



wish,

for you are eternal

in my sigh



and i will

sigh

often



in every

archived

moment



think you in

every heartbeat pause

or season unfolding



i fold each empty day

as if you have filled

them



i'll go beyond

clocks to revisit you

in every yesterday spent



i will not let tomorrow take you



you'll be in every atom

every bud about to

fling



i will not let the devil occur

or quiet take you,

you are infinite here



beyond my shoulder

but far from crows on

crippled boughs



listen



listen to

the breeze

held within my heart



you

are named

upon every petal



tho' silence comes

with eyelids

full of dew



i will not forget you
