For You

The full stop
Bringing you up short
The permanent ending
Winding you
Breath not yet returned
Sleep your enemy
Waking his ally
Loss is weighty
Like bags of peat
On shoulders already weak
With the wrackings of tears
The love surrounding
Brings a strength in numbers
Alone but bolstered
A warmth to soften the icy edges
A route to share and love through
To pass between family
And friends
Memories shared and cemented
A goodbye
To a love so deep
That words cannot reach it
Or paint its picture
A love only known to you both
But it was known
That love
It was known
