...for April

How a few sheets
of paper
wield awesome, final,
overwhelming power...
A few strokes of black
on white
and life changes irrevocably... One setting at dinner
where once were three;
awakening to a bed
suddenly twice as big;
Empty closets, empty drawers--
Empty rooms...
Years of life, laughter;
struggles and pain
--reduced in awesome finality
to solitary memories
never more to be shared... Yet, life
is the stronger,
going on to new experiences
someday to be cherished
and shared;
filling in the voids,
soothing the pains,
in the end,
triumphant. May 7, 1979
