The Day Came Quietly - A Poem in Loving Memory of my Nephew
The Day Came Quietly
The day came quietly
and rose and ebbed in my chest.
No words came with it.
I breathed and laughed and worked,
and carried you calmly close.
I celebrated you silently
as I remembered with swift pangs
a blond haired angel
who came for a season
then went quickly away.
I was able to remember and smile
at the photo taped to my desk
the day you left with the little dog
and the cloud that opened up
and welcomed you home.
There were no tears
as they come only with the words
now written down and brought to life
and the surge that clenches my heart and bursts
as I thank God that you are okay.
