For My Jim...
12/08/1943 - 7/03/1971
artist poet singer
beloved husband of Patricia
I have lived in winter since you went:
You took my seasons with you into earth
To keep them safe, forever, with your own.
I miss them not at all: I miss you more;
The seasons are all one, and that one ours.
I have loved in wonder since you went:
You, you alone, and only, ever, you.
But I can bloom in frost-time,
For I love you,
Still, and then,
And will, and now,
And ever move,
And never cease to love.
