Cherry Petals Fall Like Teardrops

Black hair, streaked with grey.

Longer, below his shoulders.

Mouth still firm and full.

 

He said, Little Bird

It is hanami.  Let us

Go and sit and talk.

 

Pink and white petals

Above us, petals falling

Like teardrops on us.

 

His eyes full of peace

As he told me how lonely

The years had been.  I

 

touched my hand to his

cheek and he put his hand on

mine.  I knew his touch well.

 

We sat under the

Cherry trees and spoke only

Heart to heart, no words.

 

I closed my eyes and

Tears rained down my face.  Always

He said.  Forever.
