1 January 2021: For Wont of Company

For Wont of Company

You’ll understand one day, when
you love someone like I’ve done,
you’ll want to pot up that feeling,
you’ll want it to bloom on forever
                             like my begonias.

But I just stood there, staring at the urn
behind your sofa with Dad’s ashes in it.
