An Anniversary

Updated on April 10, 2017

To start the day with frigid tears in eyes.

This month we would celebrate our first kiss,

alone, yet either of us are remiss

to wrap this celebration with our sighs.

A rain soaked road we met in the middle,

embraced and interlocked we stood so still,

these bodies where the rain gutters would fill

we melted into a run-off puddle.

The coffee barely overcomes the pills

in lucid memories of my children's smiles

to miss the joy of you in pregnancy.

A wound far beyond our medical skills,

our memory lost in paperwork piles,

an inkling of our anniversary.
