Remembering a dear friend today.
Tamped down in the corners of my heart
Smoothed and pressed and safe
Memories disturb me not.
But the moments roll
Over me in
A play on words
The smallest punctuation
The victories of the day-to-day.
Rock and island that I am
Just as you said I
and my glimpses of joy
are simply stories left unshared.
And so I wait in anticipation of restoration
