No Breath of Joy

A Garret Poet

No Breath of Joy
Form: Free Verse

one candle lit
set apart
for my tears will not apologize
I am dead but alive

no amount of time can pass
from this anniversary to the next
the heartless effects of years bring no ease
no air, no breath of joy

AIDS stole my heart that day
a year ago
I can’t hold you anymore
my adorable son
arms like my heart

written for a friend, with love, published with their kind consent
