small stones – January 2, 2017

for the first time, I truly saw your frailty
my once strong poppa now so brittle —
you’d fallen, dizzy from too much cold medicine
and brother had to help you down the stairs
I hadn’t worried about losing you
until then – now I am a hawk, watching
over your every move, afraid —
I’d spent so many years away from you
I don’t want to lose you so soon
