"She was a beautiful dream I never met / Tonight resolution mingles with regret"

Transcendental Sonnet #1250:

Losing Silke


alone at three in the morning


I asked her what do I do now and she said "write"

That is all I can do it connects me to you

And I am not alone so on the telephone

As we spoke for that last time she told me to rhyme


She said she would come visit me come haunt my house

I hope she does

And she will always be my Embla Engelmaus

She always was


My pencils are stubby and my face is stubbly

How am I going to do this?

I feel the emptiness of losing her doubly

That I never tasted her kiss


She was a beautiful dream I never met

Tonight resolution mingles with regret

May you take her strength and become all that she knows you can be. I hope she haunts you often. My deepest sympathies for your loss. We too lose someone very special.
Take care,
