small stones – May 8, 2016

candle_fires

the candle burns for you
not to honor who you were
no honor in abandonment
the candle burns
for who you should have been
who you could have been
who I wish you would have been
dear mother

    Not voice in the wilderness – never alone, even in the abandoned sadness. I’m not sure why I use that term. I took it out, but had to put it back in. Perhaps it will make sense to you xxx
