For Claire

Claire, there is no other word to compare

There are no other thanks that could be shared

For bringing us your tender light and

Giving us space to get upright

                     You are so kind I say with disbelief

You’ve shown me many of the ways I gave my mother-in-law grief

I wish it had not been just so

I wish I didn’t have so far to go

But if I do

I am glad

That I can share this part with you
