Melissa’s wish made me cry Ghibli tears.
Quivering drops for Sol,
pomegranate seeds sown,
Droplets dotting the dirt.
Stackings stones on Gladys’ grave, I cave;
I light the candle every year on this day.
I wonder where Sol’s soul sprouts,
Contemplate placing a stone.
This candle stands in for him,
So I’m never alone. I’m carrying him on
With everyone I’ve ever known.
