Image for the poem Grace


Daughter of my twilight dreams
taken before dawn had breached
the decades have spun away
now you visit by sleep’s way

you’re not forgotten even though
time has passed in the waking fog
during which other thoughts
crowd memorial you truly earned

you’d be decade timed by three
in something more than memory
Grace embodied as consequence
the name signifying forgiveness

one day I’ll join you beyond the veil
in the version of forever rest
perhaps then I’ll learn what we missed
separated by the life but not by love.
