Imagine their child in heaven
Meeting great-grandma.

A child holds a toy
She’ll place in her sister’s hand.
The final present.

On a day like this
Children can play outside late.
One girl is missing.

“The street light isn’t on yet!”
Summer’s late sunset.

Sorrow and regret
Are expressed in salty tears
Cried at funerals.

Riding the right lane
Driving at the speed limit
Because I’m not late.

Super Moon returns
And looks inside my window
Slowly he passes.
