To A Sibling

 

you’ve gone and
left me
here
with no guidance
the other half
of our collective
memory
the weaker half
I step into the
swirling shadows
of aging
with no one to
follow
no footsteps
in which to place
my stumbling feet
no way to anticipate
where this path
will lead me
so I will tread
slowly
bravely
humbly
as you would have

  1. Dear Candy – this is beautiful though poignant and sad. I lost my father and that was very disorienting. I cannot begin to imagine losing my older brother. May your pain be lessened. Mosk
