To My Husband
Your tears flow within your heart, mine flow
down my cheeks. Your anger lies with thoughts
and movements, mine gallops forward for all to
see. Your despair shows in your now dull eyes
mine shows in line after written line. You
grieve over the death of your son, I grieve over
the death of my baby, but we’re still the same,
still one, only we grieve at different times over
different memories and at different lengths. Yet
we both realize the death of our child.
