Finding Your Final Resting Place Wasn'T Easy

It took me a year
to find your gravesite
actually I only
went to look for it
once with my wife Clara and the kids on
my way back from Milwaukee
when I was feeling sad

I remembered during
the funeral arrangements
that they mentioned
your plot was located near the access road
near the foot of your mother’s grave

my son, Diego and I
went the second time
on an icy Sunday afternoon
there were flowers
spread out in front and the snow had
almost blanketed
the tombstone like a pillow

I didn’t feel you
or anything that closely resembled you,
during that moment of discovery
I could only hear the wind
crashing across empty gravestones
searching for a place to rest.
