For Annie

I offer you my body

to kick and pummel,

my left ear to deafen

with your screams,

if it would be a comfort to you.

I can’t imagine the pain

of your unimaginable loss.

Questions are pointless.

God, we don’t need to talk about

how we surrender, over and over,

after giving everything.

    I never thanked you for this, so thank you. These words from your heart helped to comfort my heart, one momma to another.
