Kimo Therapy

Death Of Mother:

she tucked you in at night - the nightingale,
soothed your forehead with her palm
and there her song presides.

Death Of Child:

your tears squeezed out from bleakest thunderheads
flooding the whole dam-ocean
— a friend to hold you tight.

Death Of Husband

muscular arms unwound like octopus
head aches of inky blackness
— angels tender your veil

Merriam-Webster:
Tender - to regard or treat with tenderness
