AN EPITAPH FOR EVERYTHING



I See



I walk the tight line of rigidity from a fear so deep of losing everything

You find your love for me in my soothed times, my slips, my quiet escapes from life’s entirety

I spend hours planning an hour’s meeting and when we meet by accident in the park, you love me in my exulting freedom

That I in that moment I find it hard to breathe through

Well that is how I see it



Free



And not knowing she was dead

She travelled over the waves like a child journeying happily home from school

She was known then in solitary walks walked down paths she had loved

She was in their canopy of rusted red and quiet gold
