For Christopher

my heart breaks
i see the pain in your eyes
the emptiness of tears unshed
bottomless sorrow of loss
i hold you but cannot touch
your grief
gone too soon from this world
your companion, your friend
your brother
life just beginning
with love
with child
taken in moments too quick
to discerne
leaving behind the questions
the rage
the tears
the memories.
