A Poem For My Wife

No ‘work of words’ for you.
Why such omission,
when you’ve meant more
than all of those
who’ve gone before?

I guess, because with you
I’ve felt no sense of loss.
No reason to disperse my fear
of loneliness with words.
Or need to harness your belief in me
by fixing pain upon a printed page.
