#WOL 2019


how do you keep the memory alive
of someone that was never really here?

we say our babies’ names,
we walk, we run,
we clutch teddy bears,
and point to stars where they might be

sometimes we all gather
and let candles burn for an hour

and when the light goes out
not much has changed

our babies are all still gone
we just exposed the holes in our hearts
a bit
for other people to see
