at home with ann

I will
… you won’t
I’ll do it
… you don’t
I’m here for you
… so untrue

I…
I promise…
I promise you…
I promise you I’ll…

Empty words
That roll so easily off your tongue
When we both know
No thought
No feeling
No truth in any one of them
Platitudes
Inane
Insane
The same refrain

Why say anything
When at each vow
You stumble and fall
Better… stay silent
Say nothing at all

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.


the loves of my life

at the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet ~~~ plato
