A flash from the past…Untitled

Even though you are not yet gone,
      my self does not know it;
      is preparing for the cold as gradually as possible.
 With so many claims upon you now,
      I cannot bring any I may have to bear on you.
 I must leave you as free and unencumbered
      as I can.
 Since I can take none of your pain upon myself,
      the least I can do is to bear my own.

  1. … that’s so beautiful and true…

  2. Wow. Wonderful poem. I especially like “Even though you are not yet gone / my self does not know it / is preparing for the cold as gradually as possible” – such a good image of the way we withdraw to protect ourselves.

  3. Your twenty-something year old self had a good way with words. I liked that.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
