Fingerprints in the Dust

 

for every parent who has buried a child…

~

There is a window sill in your room

that missed a dusting a time or two.

I haven’t dusted it since you’ve been gone

for the small prints I see belong to you.

 

Were you looking at a bird outside,

the day you left your prints behind?

Did you know that someday they would be,

a treasure on this sill for me?
