Across the space


Tears fall

In the quiet silence between your words

Talking of people we loved and lost

And the times we shared together

Picture images come of us

As we were then

But they are now coloured

By the undertow of grief

That was barely perceptible then

I do not seem to be able to stem the flow

Of the tide that is rising up within me

And I am aware of the fear there too

As it always is

Will I be too much

Please my friend don’t say a word

Please my friend just be with me in the quiet silence

And if you can

Reach a hand out across the space between us

And help me know

With your physical gesture

That I am safe

And not alone
