Happy Birthday, Old Man

where were you when the world turned grey

when the quiet opened up our senses

to something new

where was your heart in that moment

when the air around us became full

the motes of dust had immense weight

the light soft

the sounds dimmed by the presence of infinity

were you honest

were you kind

did you let her in, let her love you

despite the fear that you might die
