Sunshine belies her feelings

The only hue she sees today is gray
She woke up this morning
missing him. It’s been ten years
since he died…Some say ‘passed away’
but she calls it like it is…he died

And took with him, his laughter
big, bearded and boisterous
a Santa in the making, a coach for all seasons
her beloved husband, father of her children
Oh the pain of it, the why of it

She spies a crayon on the ground
of course it’s gray she thinks, just like the day
And then a thought…could it be from him?
A child would call this crayon silver

and so would he
