Standing


Sometimes I ponder
How we both stood on this cliff
You jumped.
and I stood at the edge,
pondering

I stand still
and stand
and stand

and jump

back two steps
reaching back to the hands
waiting behind me.

I'll come back to the edge
to stand
and
to ponder

I'll remember you jumped.
You were graceful and messy.
