To Grams

 

you were the one

who was supposed to

love me

 

only love me

 

the one who

wrapped me

in soft arms

 

and made me feel

for just a moment

that I was safe

 

I didn’t realize

you were human

could make mistakes

 

say hurtful things

 

but then you did

and then you

died

 

but on that dreamy day

with the light

pouring in

 

and the sweet weight

of new life

nestled beside me

 

half asleep

half awake

there you were

 

smiling at me

 

you looked so beautiful

and I felt drenched in love

soaked from head to toe

 

as I smiled back

with my lips

and with my heart

 

at you

(CCR)
