Song for My Son: 1992-2013
There is dissonance in this silence
A song of irrevocable grief
And in the stunned half light of dawn
The ringing in my ears
I am not happy with the way you ended your life
Nor with having to live the rest of mine without you.
And to say this isn’t fair
It isn’t just
It isn’t right…
To say it is… unresolved…
Ethan, I long to speak with you
And encourage you and your restless thought
To stay a little longer and to see what is around the next bend.
To hear the next note and the progression of chords
To get through another repeat… another section… another movement
And work your way all the way down
Down to the bottom of the page
To that descrescendo and ritardando..
to the coda.
