Love Will Envelop Him [REVISED]


Only the finest porcelain, miniature pink roses with
patterned white lace, delicate crystal glasses for wine;
Conan LOVES dainty things, drinking tea from these
delicate cups is kissing a pretty maiden he says

My beautiful cake stand showing prisms in the sun,
fine cake forks, cake beautifully decorated with the
golden birthday candles, two kinds of cheese cake,
salty dish to counteract sweetness in samosas

An intricately wrought metal motorbike fascinating
him - he loves toys passionately, my son chose it
so I knew it was perfect, so wonderful to see dad
here, grey beard and a rugby cap on his head

As soon as he gets up he puts it on he says as his
head is cold; I would have been sad about all dad
missed if I did not know that life goes on after
physical ends and my Conan dad will have

Everything he lacked as a child in the afterlife
where abundant love will envelop him…

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
