Simon’s Wake

Started this
awhile ago
after
your wake
actually.

But, it’s hard.

It’s weird.
Keep thinking
you’ll jump out
from behind
the curtain,
“Ta da! I’m here!”

But, you didn’t.

Your eyes,
stay closed.
Your hands,
clasped firm.
Won’t budge.
Wish it would.

But, they didn’t.

Friends
Colleagues
Family

Shocked
Grieving

Tears
Respect
Sadness
Love

Morning conversations
Coffee breaks
Tennis matches
Brit humour
Integrity
Education
Knowledge
Understanding

Are what they say
about you
They who missed you

Back then,
too upset
to say anything

But Matt said,
please remember
and I do.

so,

Hi Simon,

Thank you
For giving me
a chance
For believing
encouraging
supporting

Thank you,
requiescat in pace.
