I Cried Last Night 2011/2012

I Cried Last Night

I cried last night – a different cry.

Reading where the character –

An old man, rabbi –

Lays down, dies;

The long term cause, old age,

The short term, cancer.

Age and sickness notwithstanding,

It was I projecting certainty,

A time foreseeable –

All our times expected. Mine.

Just then.

Unwillingly, I cried.

I cried.  He’d died.

I cried. I’d died.

So sad and unexplainable.
