by Sandy Rochelle
This is the most beautiful place because it
touched his skin.
When he laughed and cried.
When he loved me and when he didn't.
When blessings became tarnished.
When the flowers in my hand were twice
When the earth spoke to me.
When the rivers swallowed me up and
drank my tears.
When I thought life was forever.
When I found out it was not.
