In Debra's Kitchen - Selected Poems by Debra Lee Cathcart
For Russell Cathcart
It’s now time to write of pain and also of bliss, the very space within of what we call abyss.
In which he leaves us each alone, but knows we’re strong to carry on,
This space he leaves within our souls was meant for us to have and hold.
He waited until such a time to know we all were well.,
We’ll wish him a good journey and that a Fare thee well.
It’s always hard to lose someone, your heart will always break.
But in the new day’s dawn, there’s nothing we’ll retake
We will miss him most certainly, of that I am most sure,
He loved his family, all of us and that I know I’m sure.
