I’ve Got Time

June 1, 2010

They say time heals all wounds.

The garden ferns survived the frost

and so have I.

It’s been almost a year since you’ve

been gone.

It’s only now I walk in the garden

where you lovingly placed the stepping

stones, built a garden box for us,

sat at the table under the big umbrella

working your Sudoku puzzles.

We lit the tiki torches twice, I think.

Then you were gone.

Fast as you came.

This grief will pass.

These things take time.
