it was amazing to see so many people i "use" to know
it made me understand i have lost touch a bit
with my community
no kids left to keep us all bound together
no teaching job to at least keep some of us
connected. . .
it is sad it takes a death to bring us together
but he would have loved the fact
that we all were there to celebrate his life
told stories about him and laughed and cried
and he would have been damn proud
of my garden this year. . .
