Elemental

I want to say thank you
even though you’ll say
there’s nothing to mark
about this occasion,
that there’s nowhere else
you’d be and nothing else
you’d be doing except
standing here steadfast.

Your heart is strong and
you are granite in this moment
when I need stone to beat upon
you do it in a way that seems
commonplace already
(like you’ll always be here,
always being exactly what I need).

So I want to say thank you
even though you’ll say
there’s nothing that
needs to be said
as you take
my hand in yours
to kiss away the pain
and try to fill in this
loss with the vastness
of your presence.
