Poem for Kristina
written Aug. 10th, 2009

and i can see her
her brilliant smile
like the friends she kept,
and the words she wrote
they were always


[but] a couple of pages were missing
(it would have had-deserved-a fairy tale ending)
parts of a broken hour glass cutting us down to size
when the sand stopped falling
that saturday,
the sullen grey sky crying from your loss
and a crystal gem slides from my eye
and flows down my cheek

and i can see her
her face rises in the air away from me,
up to the sky
i sigh.
