To The Girl Upstairs in the Small Room

To The Girl Upstairs in the Small Room

written by: Timothy Resau

 

I have listened
(now) for years.
You have gone forward
in small spaces.
Your eyes, uncovered,
have seen the last curve
in this world.
We have talked together for days,
laughed, and cried for years.
It was not easy!
Oh, it was never easy!
You will continue going…
taking encyclopedic trips,
and upon returning you’ll recount,
for me, from a small chair,
of my absence.
