GOODBYE MIRIAM
REMEMBRANCE AT DEBORAH’S

People came and brought a dish
I ate too much
But they also brought
their love
their memories
shared stories
We looked at pictures
piled on the table
flashed on the TV screen
of Miriam’s life
Some, before we knew her
a gorgeous young woman
pictures of a young married couple
pictures of a mom hugging her children
pictures of her traveling
pictures of us all together
at family dinners
But today
the picture I carry in my mind
is her frail body resting in bed
that last day
as we said Goodbye
