As I stand at attention

Alert, assured,

Intent

As I stand as the sun,

Still

Silent

As I remember

A tremble, a shake

May give me away

As I relive

A moment, an eternity

Of that day

Solemn

In my solitude

Reverent

I stand as the sun,

Still

Silent

A flag

A flower

They stand with me alone

A remembrance

A thought

A monument of stone

In anywhere but this cemetery

In anywhere else but

This place

Still standing at attention

Just the sight of an engine

Recalls your face

Barely keeping head above water

Not quite drowning in my grief

I find myself again at this headstone

With only this flower and candle to bequeath

I stand at attention

Alert, assured,

Intent

I stand as the sun

Still

Silent

I save this moment for you

For all that I miss

On this  21st day of December

I mark the winter solstice

Standing at attention

Solemn in my solitude

Intently reverent

Standing as the sun

Still, silent

Solstice
