An End, A Beginning

Tonight, I was flipping through my poems


– Each one a cherished memory,

Reminder of a tender moment


And then I thought

If all of that has ended

That I’ve lost the ability to love like that

The ability to feel like that

And if it was the end


It was then that you shook me from my reverie

Asking an inane question and smiling that trademark smile of yours

Which never fails to evoke one from me

You – my beautiful daughter


And I looked deep into your eyes

And thought that perhaps there had been an end

But there had also been a new beginning.
