Whispering Each Other’s Names


She loved it when the wind gently lifted his feathers

she tucked her wing under his,

and felt so alive

they both ascended


each other’s names.

New Dreams


I remember weeping when you told me your dream of having hair again,

looking at old photographs telling the story

but now it’s Christmas, My Love

and the beauty of the season

is still healing us.

As the grief dissipates

we can dream new dreams

as as we embrace the future

nose to nose,

smiling, walking within the lights

as we hold each others hand.


Note: I share this as a matter of personal experience, of how love sees us through the difficult times, not out of any sense of self pity.
