we gathered,
were gracious,
remember grateful
glowing into golden?
we shone
like sunsets
but stronger,
like starlight
but unstoppable.
but then the cold,
the callow, the cancer,
the kryptonite cramping
it’s claws into our comfort.
we were friendly,
fearless, ferocious,
until finally with a flash

came the fall!
