Just Can’t

You would think

That tears would dry up

When understanding

You had to go

And yet

My heart is still entwined

With your smile

Your voice

Your sweetly wrinkled face

I know too well

This had to be

That the gift of you

Would be unwrapped

On your final day

Mostly through wet eyes

Gratitude flows

And happiness

That your beautiful

Beautiful journey

Begins another

And yes, yes

I will always love you

Mary Becker!
