There was a piece of paper next to my wedding ring

"Not all fools are foolish" 

Words written by my deceased wife

Hurt made me feel responsible

Years later after children with another


Hand in hand we sat

The death of our son

Mourning like none other experienced


Covered in soot from a fire lit I was stone

In disbelief she was water

On a day when the fire got out of control

Staring straight we were both in a trance

A foundation that was better suited for building


Hand in hand side by side

It might have been me positive intensely blazing

The wine glass was half full

Even with the little translucent spiders crawling up and down the glass

Resting on an old tree stump


Something that I never experienced

A loss that cannot be returned

Like family members dying akin to dominoes falling

Within a short span of years


The rigid never wanted water punishing those for their lament

In my repent was the non relent of those that only take and hate

Steamrolling over the real wrongs that were done

Like their victims never deserve to have a right

At that moment it was us after the fire extinguished

Covered in soot mourning our loss we wept
