Thank You

(in memory of Peter Dawnay, 17th Dec 1932 to 6th April 2021)


I hadn't realised
how much more
there was to say.

Your cold stillness
such stark contrast
to your warm smile.

Infinite meets infinite,
is this not the unspoken
truth when two lives meet.

Stars explode, the universe
expands, who taught us
to believe we are different.

The embers of my father
now cooling while memory
burns with flashes of light.

So much more to say, but
perhaps for another time.
I love you, and thank you.
