for the first time ever,
i received news, the hard kind
and it makes me cry everyday.
and wonder at his trusting peace even in death.
my heart keeps shuddering, sputtering,
trying to find the same.
and remembering everything,
i cry again.

he showed us his favorite place on the Inland Sea
and taught me to skip rocks,
making me laugh so hard,
and there was Only Time in the car

we can't know what time remains,
and it makes me try and try to find
something that will prevent it.
