Angel

I brought your ashes home today
locked safe in an urn, waiting there
to be mixed with my own
I still think I see you
from the corner of my eye
or hear you on the edge of thought
if I just listen hard enough
I still feel your affectionate self
curled up with me in happy song
I brought your ashes home today
and they sit now on the shelf
a shrine to love departed
and memory of sweetness
You were fearless in your love
seeking nothing but the same in return
I miss you, sweet friend
and I weep for you still
