He heard her
talking to friends
about life and goodness
so he married her

she was beautiful
but he always said
it was a gift apart

he held her hand
for half a century
and then one day
he couldn’t

and the news stories
go on from here
about how he arrived
every morning
when the cemetery opened
and he stayed
until it closed

twenty years like this
until his flesh
finally let him go
to the quiet earth
beside her

but I want to know more
about the café
was she laughing
did he interrupt them
and what was it she said
about goodness.
