An Ode to the One Who Loved Me by Jessica Ni Leacai

You brought love unto me,
in much happier times

In this sad meadow,
in this dark, decrepit dense

Where no wonderment danced,
in these woed children’s eyes

You bathed their sorrows,
in loving watered tin buckets

And they remember you still,
in memory, my dearest darling
