HE WAS HERE

And then…

he was gone

 

he took with him

his voice

and crooked smile

 

his welcoming eyes

and calm purpose

to all he met

 

he left behind

his favorite hat

a pen for writing

a few books

and a cat and dog

that still look for him

 

sorrow fills in hard

the void at first

 

flooding cherished

memories into corners

of what remains
