Rocking Chair

Rocking Chair 


This morning 
Before anyone else was awake
I sat next to your old chair
It began to rock 
Back and forth in the breeze
The sunlight shifting across the seat 
I felt your presence 
I know you were here
I reached out 
And put my hand on the arm
As the chair continued to sway
I felt you
Your hand on mine 
And I smiled 
Long after the chair stopped moving

  1. How sad and comforting. You hint at a beautiful, long backstory in these few lines.
