I sit in the quiet underneath the white oak
watch the rain rolling from my left
edging the sun towards my right
Isn’t that what grief does to us
chipping away the simple things we enjoy
I remain sitting under the tangled arms
unshaken, unmoved, undisturbed
Here is my sanctuary and centre of gravity
where we once hid from the world’s chaos
and found each other locked gaze in awe
