in the garden

 
caught me off guard
the dark & somber
that's to be expected
grief in full attendance
small town church
now missing a member
same time honoured hymns
I sat there
mute
blinking double time
staring at the ceiling
hundreds in the book
and they had to choose yours
it threw me back
barely 15
knees knocking & terrified
keeping you in my line of sight
and your eyes
glimmering with pride
lip quivering
as you held it in
while I sang
that song
your favorite
but then...today
sitting there
in that hard plank pew
I couldn't get that image out of my mind
sucking in a stuttering breath
I'm feeling a little shattered
cuz every damn day
I miss the hell outta you
