On Sudden Death

March 9, 2010

This feeling blessed

to naturally possess

a great grandmother,

or some other, who passed

to you, a telling and precious

tale  taught/told to you, or sung, accompanied by

a locket of gold.

                                         ‘

to hold it tightly

rubbing it, and hiding it nightly.

It ought to go to the thought-out

   safe  secret  spot.

                                      .

Years do veer you away from…

Years do lessen  the lesson of

the veneer  of  preciousness.

And the old gold locket gets lost.

One goneness  devastates us.

We’ve forgotten to wait.  And expect this.

                                        .

This feeling blessed

To naturally possess

Sure treasure, Sure loss.

    Years do lessen the lesson of

    the veneer of preciousness.

    I “get” this.
