if only the world were a safer place
for such a beautiful smile, so open and warm,
eyes that shine out with intelligence and wit,
i know this about her even though i do not know her
innocence taken, the innocence of a late evening stroll
with two dogs out for their last sniff of the day,
their last pee on the bushes,
all those she left behind against her will,
the world should be a safer place
and in its absence, in her absence, the
world grieves.
