Poem for Margaret on the last day of her first and only year.


I don’t regret this year
of joy and pain, the laughter
stilled by silence. Though
I cannot know, I hope
that Love loves you and you
love those who live unbroken
but broken, holding each other
because we cannot hold you.

Pray for me, my daughter,
my Pearl, that I live through
these empty years to find
my family always loving
and life less cruel than kind.
