Window Pain

Window Pain


There's a light on in the bedroom

Where before there wasn't one

There's a glow tonight from the office

Where yesterday there was none


Through the window pane

I can smell her pain

Coming, going all alone

Peeking through the blinds

Brother later finds

She was dead in her own home


How can he do without?

There are no more tears for now

Could it then be me a day or years from here

Left with nothing but what I own?


In this home time it races

Flip books of flashing faces

Would she have filled in the spaces

If only we had known?
