now and then I think of you
as I sit here looking at the empty chair across the kitchen table
now and then I miss you
the absence of you preparing the oatmeal as only you were able
the ready smile upon your lips
what happened to the promise of tomorrow
what happened to the hope unfulfilled
leaping out of my heart as the whispered dish of sorrow
the sun rises each morning
orange red blood like drops of glory
yet I sit here paralyzed in thought
dying like the stagnant pond of algae
