Things You Didn't Say:

“I am leaving,”
would be first and foremost
now we are grieving as sorrow plays host.

You didn't say,
“this is WHY I am leaving, away I will float.
And know that I'm leaving, not leaving a note.”

You could have said:
“goodbye to my dearly beloved two dogs
no more will I hear Jersey's singing tree frogs.
Yes, I leave you behind,
my dear hubby and birds,
as despair that engulfs me
leaves me without words.”

You neglected to mention
and left us no note
in this sad declension
we'd hold dear what you wrote!
