Can you hear me
to my uncle Did you have a secret? Was it more than one? Information, someone said was eternal. I can not not wonder: in a realization of this sonder, did you to take away some back to where you came from. Did you want something to keep in a corner, tucked under your heart through this protracted hour of sleep; Is that for me to figure? Or is it something for you, only for you? What's a locked safe without a key? You've left us a maze A mystery to face; a code to decipher; a cavern to uncover. I pry and try to dig out the unknowns, to resolve this labyrinthe; for you left us jagged corners of an incomplete world. What do we do when your disappearing act shrouds us in black? Can you hear me and the voices within? Will you listen as I whisper to you all that I forgot to? Will you ease into a nap as I sing a lullaby, patting your hair, closing each gap? Will you confide in me, where you went I'll keep it with me like it was meant Till we reunite A future day, a later night. Do you have a last word? A word for me only me. Say it softly In a susurrrant hush I'll get the words amidst the dissonance. I'll try to hear I press, press my ear. This time I won't mind the mush. With love.
