Going Through My Address Book Today

 

Going through my address book today,

I was stunned at how many people

are dead now,

both family and friends.

 

I also noticed that,

through the passing of years,

I never crossed any of their names out,

so I didn’t cross any of them out today,

either.

 

I just left them,

as if I were trying to keep

a terribly sad secret

from myself.
