One day

by mandaceehb

One day you will be happy again

The image of him lain eternally in a meadow of

rootless flowers plucked from nature and compressed

into wreaths of words fertilised with empathy

Will be eroded in fragments


Like a puzzle released from a cloud-scattering airplane

Piece by piece your thoughts will fall away and return to earth

Because you cannot reside in two worlds at once

Tangible flesh will fade away into an intangible memory

And there, forever you will hold him in your thoughts
