Later

Later by Teri H Hoover
(for my nephew who just found  his wallet, checkbook and father this week..He found his father on facebook.) 



later 
Nearly 20 years
between his wallet and his check book
He found his father


He found his father 
between his wallet and his check book
Nearly twenty years 
later


a hole is left by what is lost 
sometimes
finding is more empty 

finding is more empty
sometimes
a hole is left by what is lost 


who you are will not unfray
once that day comes
breathe

breathe 
once that day comes
who you are will not unfray



 
still the echoes

still the echoes

  1. This is wonderful, I love the mirroring effect of the stanzas and how this moves the poem and me.
