The Message
unknown

Today would've been the day
 1
when I telephoned at sunrise
 2
to wish you Happy Father's Day.
 3
 
 
Instead, I beheld
 4
the blushing, boundless sky
 5
to relay my greeting
 6
by thought and spirit,
 7
hoping a winged messenger
 8
would deliver it to you.
 9
 
 
Instead, I visited
 10
Hallmark to select the card
 11
with message etched in gold,
 12
the card that won't be sent.
 13
 
 
Instead, I listened
 14
to your voicemail message,
 15
the last one that you voiced
 16
before your transition.
 17
 
 
Today is the day
 18
when silent moments sting.
