Thirteen Years Later…

We stand

Around so much ruptured soil

Where a stone

Carves out your name.

Marks the place

Where you landed,

And from where

You always seem to rise.

An uneasy rest

You have found in us.

Our hearts,

And our heads,

Still orbiting

Around your absence.

Mulling over the earth ā€”

Imagining how different

Everything would be

If only you remained.

You were a star

A supernova

Scattering us across the galaxy

When you left.

Iā€™d trade Saturn

To have you here with us.
