A Poem for Lisa


A Poem for Lisa

A dear friend of mine lost her Daddy today after a long illness. She is heartbroken. I didn’t quite know what to say, so I wrote it in a poem. I hope it helps her.

The Guardian


hear the horizon
sweet honeysuckle wafts
totally silent and
very gladly accepted
guardianship
over the new light
absolutely
just discovered
leave it to watch
or another reason
given to the sky
made in the new
a vow
taken with
a baby’s laughter
hand-painted glass
a wise young teacher
thought
and said
life is so much more
than i needed
