Ancestors

He wrote a letter
We asked him
What about

He simply said
To say Thank You
And Goodbye

Font size 16
Double-spaced
Just to make sure

He might not
Read his hand
A little boy’s

Talking about
He would not
Tell us

What he meant
In a world
Now bereft

Certainty fluttering
With the letter
Into the grave

  1. It is a wonderful poem.
    Some things you just cant figure.
    If you do right by folks you dont need to worry about them too much ,but still you wonder,you wonder.

    peace
