How many ordinary moments
just like this one
have we spent
of cherished conversation
pieces of each other
safely exchanged

How is it now
in a moment, so carefree
I would feel your pain
as if for the first time
and know you more fully

It was there      
woven in the laughter
a glimpse
of a mother’s loss
a woman’s courage

As I listen
I am humbled
grateful for the friendship
the opportunity to be
in the presence
of goodness and love
bearing witness to a choice
made long ago
to keep living
finding reasons to smile
while asking
nothing of the world
