Succor

I went
to your door,
numb resigned,

you extended arms,
fearful flutters
calmed

angry
helpless
tears dried

silent
mute cries
simply sighed –

what you’ve
planned none
can gain say,

I simply sought
succor, dignity, grace
for loved one

to play
game of life
with panache –

feisty
spirit afloat,
and as a lit candle

finally twinkle
in your velvety sky,
burning bright~
