The chair remained alone in my room,

I could imagine all that I wanted

that night sitting in my usual

space where all my thoughts cascade.

She arrived that evening,

with dad standing behind,

that way they did

always together,

knowing each other

living with love

despite themselves.

I asked her a question

I needed only answer

in my own way

alone imagining

everything I always wanted to say

sitting in the chair nearby

her presence immediate

drew a smile across my face,

the tears though real,

always knowing

so much conversation

left behind.

Now today, reflective

want to say,

‘Hi Mom”

“Hi Dad”

love you both

to forever.

Enjoy the space

feels good to me,

hope you might feel some zen.
