Objects in mirror are closer than they appear

For what we’ve loved
and left behind

or lost,
resides in us.

The swell of the sea
lives in the deep breath

the mountains,
in the mind’s eye

a mother’s hand,
in the soft palm of our own

a brother’s music,
in the hollow of the ear

a missed child,
in the cradle of the chest.

All that we’ve loved
and left behind

or lost,
resides in us.
