This is a poem I wrote for a couple who have just sustained a heavy loss. Evie and PD are a dear couple who are on a couple of my lists. Evie was hit and killed by a drunk driver on Friday and died last night. She'll be sorely missed. This is for them:


The tear that falls down from your eye
And courses down your cheek
Is a sign of your love for her
And never makes you weak
For with that droplet glistening
We peer into your soul
And there within resides your love
Your tears have made her whole.
