Nearly a year ago

When you left

I never had a chance to say a proper goodbye

I was engaged

To cancer at the time

My life turned upside down

Pieces of me scattered

In the menagerie of loss

Today I found

My yesteryear self

Reflected in your lens

From another time

Your keen eye

Spanning the future

As if to say

“I see into you, always, my friend”

One response to “Helen”
