You left me, sweet, two legacies-

A legacy of love

A Heavenly Father would content,

Had He the offer of;



You left me boundaries of pain

Capacious as the sea,

Between eternity and time,

Your consciousness and me.


Emily Dickinson

    That’s beautiful, Kim. Emily Dickinson is inexhaustible. (But I think it nees to be “your” consciousness. You can delete this note.)
