    the moment he was silenced
    i found my voice

    one of the great loves of my life
    who called me
    "mama-san"
    "little mama"
    fried me fish on friday
    never fussed at me
    kept my security pillow
    'til i got out of school
    made the perfect breakfast....
    all six foot something of him
    was wrapped around my little finger
    from birth
    until the tenth year of life
    then the weight
    (which i never minded)
    was lifted

    he had so much loved
    and received so much love
    that his heart was simply
    overwhelmed
    overjoyed
    so it softly
    and quietly
    bid life
    adieu
    bid me
    adieu

    but when beauty died
    it was reincarnated
    and called
    "poetry"

    the silence was broken
    the blank page filled...

    my first words
    were on the back
    of the funeral program

    cuz

    the moment
    he was silenced
    i found my voice

    rip- grandpa :)

    The peace I feel from absorbing
    a beautiful piece like this...
