7 Threnodies – 2

Like a path through the ocean,
You seemed an impossibility
To those of us more
Conventional than
You ever were.

But you would never
Walk on water,
You didn’t hold to such.

You were earth and water,
With a touch of fire,
But never the slightest trace
Of anything like wind.

You’d seen the dark before,
And what is more,
You’d been the dark;
And the path you chose
Took you to many rooms
Few people dare enter —
But you lived life,
Not a storybook
Prettied-up version of it.

And when you found love,
You really, truly found love.

You were love, itself, to
Those who loved you,
And your leaving left a hole

Not even an ocean

Could ever fill
