Poem: Don't Let The Light Go Out

We didn't even take a picture.

Why would we
after meeting together
every week for years?

Yet here I sit,
wishing I had an image
of your faces, now that we
have come to the end.

Sitting in the front yard
on this cool evening,
we shared food and gentle
conversation, below the
slow song of a dove.

A single candle burned.

We listened with love,
resting upon our
collective presence.

This was our safe place,
where we could open
our hearts without fear.
