Leaning My Heart On Your Soul

When I go walking
Dogs and I
I walk to the nearby
Memorial Wall
whose simple message


calls my name

I stop by the wall
Made in memory of Robina Steiner
And read
that fill my heart with courage



to live on



It is by the memory wall that I find
the right words
to have inscribed
in my new ring
a band of eternal love
the only bridge
to that other world
where I can rest my heart

Leaning my Heart on your Soul

A Heavy Weight

The weight of his coffin
is bearing down on me
This morning
I did not want
to get out of bed
Did not want to face
the world alone.

I have to put the coffin
Shift the weight
Hoping that the
will lighten with time
