Soft sounds ease the pain,
Gentle words bring short smiles.
We were there to share love,
Remember his presence here

while it lasted at least.
My mother wept
Grandmother kept silent.
What was I to do?
Barley 3 and lost

no full understanding

no sleep for the past week

no father to wipe away my tears,
Wobbling to the giant wooden box in front,
Standing on my toes with flowers in my hands.
“Good night daddy, I love you”
As I dropped the pedals into his new bed.
