Joy

Are you leaving now? So soon?
It seemed like only yesterday
you smiled, told me to come in.
There was a hug too, I think.
You have lain here, so long
no one remembers how tall
or is it short—(lived) you are.
We’ve been waiting, I think.
I guess this is good-bye.
I remember the earrings
you gave me at the first
Christmas. Pearl, I think.
