Nothing But This

For Laurence

You leave us here.
We all knew you were
going. Your absence
is no surprise.
Yet it is.

Somewhere between
mind and heart is a
veil of self-deceit, a
lie of self mastery. This
day, as yesterday,
in unending march.

We should celebrate
your freedom from a
broken body. Yet
we will mourn the
loss of your light.
A light that made
ours a bit brighter.

See all the beauty
you never knew you
were. Swim within
the shine of the
Universe. Revel in
the love that we send
between our tears.

For now you know
what was always
