Poem of the Week: The Invisible Company

The Invisible Company

I didn't know.
Blissful ignorance,
Untouched by real loss.

Now, my heart's eye is opened:
How many of  us walk
With this insistent absence!

You smile, but I know:
You too are a member
Of the Company Unaccompanied.

This Tuesday will be 6 months since my dear MIL's passing.
