The Window

Your smile,

    Your laughter,

         Your goofiness

Memories on the wind elude my grasp

A hug,

    A wink,

         A hair-tousle

The promise of a life well-lived cut too short

Your strength,

    Your ambition,

          Your tenderness

Thoughts of you warm my heart; your father’s fills with pride

This longing for you threatens to consume me
     as I stare through the window for

 One more smile,

     One more hug,

         One more of everything
