Poems and Poetry

Memory | A Poem by Richard Kalfus

Love remains
never lost
though you are gone.

Before me daily
Your image never fails
to warm me.

You call me from a business trip.
You check on the children nightly.
You dig in the garden.
You speak long distance
to parents in another city
who nurtured you
before you came to me.

I am forever grateful.

It was a risk you took,
to share a life with me
whom you loved,
but hardly knew.

Yet you knew
Long before I did.
So very sure you were.
Sure that:
Different cultures
Different language
Different religion
Were powerless

In the face of love.
