in memory of a wonderful artist, poet and father

CameraZOOM-20140606160229477

I lay my head on your heart

And listened to each breath

Slowly being released

Into the summer air.

Waiting for your heart

To bloom.

For me

To tend to it until the blooms faded

-then plant it

Next to the pale purple lilacs

That you loved.

That way

you could return every spring

And the centre of the flower

Would be your beautiful heart.
