Child’s Play

If you put your hands
In front of your face,
A baby will think you’ve
Disappeared —

And giggle innocently with
Delight when you remove
The hands from
In front of your eyes.

Grief is not child’s play.

Are you gone, simply
Because I cannot
See you?


I wrote this one back in May but am just sharing it now.
