In Memory of Linda Cafferillo 2/24/15

I hear the splinters form
And I begin to shatter
As I stand 
Eyes filled with sorrow
Threatening to spill over
As I learn
Of the loss
Of yet another
So dearly loved
So cruelly taken
And lost to me

But I have something of yours.... Something that even as greedy
As final
As heart wrenching as 
Can not take away 
From me

The way you would smile at me
The way your eyes
Would glow
With love and pride
When you spoke to me
Of your children 
Your grandchildren
And how they were your
Greatest achievement 
The way your hand fit
With my own
And the way 
You could make 
The whole world
Fall away
With just a word
A touch

Nobody but you
Has ever come close
To melting this ice I've 
Formed around my heart
And grows colder still
Inside my chest
