The remnants of salty tears
Still evident on my cheeks

I have wept for you again

Not as often, not as wrenching, 
But my heart still bleeds
All these years later

The tiniest fragment
Of a reminder, of a memory
And I am swept back in…

Memories swirling around me
Like errant fall leaves
Amidst a wild storm

An eager child,
I chase, I reach, I grasp
But in the end, I have far too few
Clutched to my breast

I am left alone in the rain,
A pain throbbing in my chest
Greater than any child’s fathom

A grieving woman
Housing a heart that just may be
Beyond full repair
