"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." --Marcus Aurelius

I haven’t much to
sleep about; it’s silent but
the silence is loud.

There is a space shaped
like a one-winged songbird (small
and soft and broken)

in my world tonight.
Now, if I sang out, nothing
sweet would answer me.

I remember Rose now! I remember you mentioned she was a bird you rescued (or something to that effect). I'm sorry to hear that Rose passed away (if from what I'm inferrring from this poem is correct). Love the bitter but real ending.
