Day 365

4_18_10.JPGToday
was
a
beautiful day.
I am
here.

At day 365
not just standing
but rooted
grateful
and
joyful to take the next breath.

The grief is not gone.
Do not be fooled.

It will lurk within me
surface at unforgettable moments
until I draw my last breath.

But today

T-O-D-A-Y
I am
grateful to Art.

Grateful for the life we had together
and
grateful
for all those people
none and unknown
close to me
and distant
mean,
empathetic,
helpful,
hurtful.

I stand here
because of all of them
because of me
because of Langston, Pallas and Ezra

It's day
365
and the
sun
feels
glorious on my face.
