Enough to Hear the Heartbreak

It’s hard to remember
when I last heard silence
when it became apparent
you would no longer respond

Death is too dramatic
it was quieter
a warm warble on a winter’s day
as the sun peaked

I asked you to be close to me
to stay there till I was ready
and it was wonderful
and it was terrible

The charity of the moment
is all I have left
my honest request
met with the remains of your love
