Missed

A sweet little old lady.
She died
alone in the parking lot, after
a long day of work.
Her heart spluttered, failed.
We didn’t see her fall.

She is…

He died.
Tired today, he says…
I’m not really hungry
Lay next to the wife, sleep then
eyes opened one last time

He is…

The child
un-named, un-born
an idea not yet fully realized
Already cherished
A possibility…

Missed.
