They come and go

As shadows throughout the day

Disappearing at night

Except for when one shines a light

I am lighting a candle

please return

The day disappeared without notice

But I notice you’re gone

And now

in the constant darkness

I miss shadows


the 14th of june 2011 would have been 63

have four years and a half passed

 I remember 59

I remember 26

I am reminded of numbers

though it is words, smells and laughter  I miss

life is crazy that way

perhaps it is death I should say

whether you were here or there

you are within my heart everywhere

So I light this candle for you to see

Happy birthday daddy
