walls

in this room, unchanged by time, you lie

asleep, peaceful in your unknowing

nothing changes here…the cards from events long past still open on your bureau

photographs from your previous life, almost forgotten now by some. mementos, keepsakes, pieces of the you who was

i know you as a part of myself, you need not speak. i feel your needs. my lingering son…still handsome and strong
