You never looked lovelier...


Time adorned you on this ordinary day
a few strands of silver
set off that blue
sweater on this day
at Redfish,when you smiled across the table
at the man who took this picture
who knew you better than your own mother.

Time was
when you never
had all you wanted
when the meal was finished, and it ran off before you felt
accomplished
with what your life became.

In each moment, like this one through time
you never looked any lovelier.
Too bad. You would have loved all you saw
even when your eyes were tearing
and your heart was broken
by life's constant waves of grief.

'Time adorned you...' How beautifully said. Wished I could have appreciation for time's adornments, but nope, I could rather do without them.

i am glad for moments we can break through and enjoy life...not smothered in the grief we all seem born into at times....

Very moving poetry. Seemed to be both joy and grief in your writing.

I understand the waves of grief, and regret, but life is too short, especially at our age to spend time on regret. It's quite a moving piece.
