seventeen years ago…
(Kelly Lune, Collom Lune, pi ku, tau ku, Shadorma)

for you I light flame
one candle
to remember you

for the parent
that I want to remember –
everyone else’s gift

all the time
you
gave of yourself

selflessly to those in
dire
need – though you often forgot…me

Tell me please
Am I that selfish
For wanting
To have had
Just a little more of you
To recognize me?
