An Ebony Box

What can be kept in an ebony box?

Diamonds, maybe. Or gleaming gold coins.

Perfumed beige stationary?
Forgotten reminder notes?
Business cards of firms that no longer exist?

Touches of childhood, marbles and jacks. Or toys for grown-ups; dice, decks and dull plastic discs that mean money.


No. Not here.

This box holds ashes. 

The breath that warmed your cheek.
The weight that settled your heart.
That adoring gaze...

Grief is the price we pay for love.





Rest in peace.
