Pictures from the mind (4)

I see an empty space at the table.

Remembering all we did together

Did you get what you wanted from your journey?

She wondered aloud

Addressing the empty space

I hope for your sake it hit all the right notes.

I went digging at the bottom of the garden yesterday

In anticipation of this day (our birthday)

Where we buried that hidden treasure

All those years ago.

Before innocence was lost.

Each night now I look up at the moon

Wondering, thinking, are you thinking of me.

There is still a room in the house

Space at the table

But you have what was most important to you

Your freedom.


I hear the rattle of the food trolley.
