I Did Not Bear it Bravely

I did not bear it bravely
when you left.
Loss petals are flowers,
their memory in bloom.

Thanksgiving from
another room.

Children calling
who may need you,
but you can't
reach them.

Don't say
I am brave.

If your loved one
was leaving you,
you would howl
into hopelessness
and be knocked flat,
too.

If your loved one
left you
you would bear it
as all living do.

Not in nobility
but agony,
which is only
silently tremendous.

Kathy Keena
