February 12, again

February 12, again Must you, must you, hotter than fire, seek your prey. Sun do not dare arise nor collect your praise for stardom. You hid you curative warmth, shrouded her instead in ironic cimmerian way. Turned to torrent, you were but the eye a momentary flash, as she limply lay Please rain today. Please rain today. Kathy Collins February 12, 2014 in memory of my dearest Jeannie who died Feb. 12, 1995

My precious only son died February 22 in 1999. Both he and your Jeanne died on red letter days on calendar as if we needed that to remember. Thanks for reading and commenting. Love, Joyce

Dear Joyce, She had put a valentine card in the mail which I received a day or two after she died. Not easy this dying. love, Kathy
