I have always and will forever wanted to be good and yet.

An old poem:

I hope you know
In any small way
How much it meant to me
When we went walking
In the morning
Down the dirt road
In Virginia
To look at
The Blue Ridge Mountains
I had told you
An awful
While driving
White knuckled
In dangerous conditions
I was prone, then
To private sobbing
(My ear to her stomach - did I hear two hearts?)

Our friend
Then free of cancer
Told us
To look at
The Blue Ridge Mountains
Through a clearing
On the road
In the morning
