Grandmother

The moment of
brief brightness in
your eyes
because of a
fleck of light love
on your cheek

The acknowledged
grace of an
entire life
lived
smoothed over by
water and
pushed hard
through time

Age is a
terrible thing at
times
and graceful in
quiet moments
when loves passes
through a
room
then goes back swiftly to
silence

Our moments are
getting shorter
but life is losing
her game to
everlasting time

And the in between
from where you
leave
and we
again some moment
meet
is only a
pause
the in between stage where
water must smooth
my body
and time must
wrinkle my mind

– And when then, time
loses her battle
with me
I’ll again meet you –

and kiss you,

lightly

on the

cheek
