Not Alone

By John I. Blair

Itís been a year,
One full cycle of the sun,
Since one full cycle
Of your life

I do not go
To visit you;
Youíre not there
In that small box
Immured in stone.

If youíre anywhere
You dwell
Within me,
Watching me
With hazel eyes,

Reminding me
To stay well,
Keep appointments,
Stop for stop signs,
Remember pills.

I can almost
Feel your hand,
Smell your skin,
Hear your voice
Laughing at my jokes.

Iíll be lonely
But not alone;
Youíre still here.
