For Joseph

For Joseph, Who Left Too Soon

by Carmen H Gray

Your name means

He shall add

And in such an abbreviated life

You have given meaning

To strangers and family alike

You have amplified our lives

Even those who never knew you

You remind us

We are resolute waves

Merging into one another

With our collective warmth

Holding each other in the ebb and flow
