Moments before the war
You were starting toward the old lights across the kitchen floor
It came in ringing
Wake to a hospital ceiling
Came through while silently singing
Straining for a chance to see
Until you came back to me

Before this war

You move around like no one can tell
Until the time when you finally swell out the door into sight
In humid daylight
“I’ve had my fill” you swore, speaking out in indelible chords
You say what you can’t take back
Cheers to what comes next
Before this war
