How did you know
that the dawn
would bring a
sunrise so bright
while I was
racing out of
the night,
why did you
pick just
the perfect
music for
the new discs
and select
some fabulous
glass spheres
for my art,
how did you
find such a
mix of tunes
to make me
cry and dance
around the
room, throwing
off the gloom
to soaring states,
how did you
know that I
needed your
company to
soothe my soul
prop me up while
I watch the sight
we both dread,
a beloved person
fade away…
oh so slowly,
how can you
possibly see now
how much
you mean to me,
chicken spaghetti
and Hubs, even
a chilly house
is better than none,
but I sailed all
the way home
on your smile,
a big hug to wish
safe trip,
maybe when you
read this, it
will say it all…
