Old and new

  

Another new experience 

and you are not here. 

You’d think that coming up

on the nine month

mark

I’d be prepared for the

confusion 

that freezes my mind

momentarily 

when I have a victory to cheer

an annoyance to vent

a discovery

words to delight

hours in night

when there is

not a soul awake

and the seconds tick 

relentlessly loud and 

the world is

done. 

All that I shared with you 

in this life

is now old. 

But the new

breaks in with

each moment. 

Now, my eyes see

with some of your

insight

and  when 

I draw breath 

I know the air that 

fills my lungs

includes old atoms that

once you 

breathed, too. 

With  this breath

I move into today. 

In time

I might even

discover new

Love. 

This day 

that I am in

happens now 

and you are 

in it, too

because you are 

in me.
