Endearing

Thinking about

your thoughtful smile,

and the way

you’d brush your hair

out of your face.

You’d laugh,

almost as if

you didn’t care

that the world

was ending. 

                                                                                                                                          .

Clamor and catastrophe.

All the things

that never seemed

to cross your mind.

Not that you were

cool and composed;

always a mess,

even at the

very best of times.

                                                                                                                                          .

But somehow,

through all of this

and more,

you and I

have survived.

What a crazy time

to be alive.

                                                                                                                                          .

Wondering what you

would do now?

How you’re keeping

your feet on the ground?

I wonder

if your laugh

still sounds

like an angel’s?

                                                                                                                                          .

                                                                                                                                          .
